I am a native speaker of German (Austria) with 13 years of experience as a freelance translator and interpreter specialising mainly in medical and pharmaceutical translation.

• Ph. D. in Translation Studies from Dublin City University and a degree in Interpreting from the University of Graz, Austria
• Membership of professional associations (UNIVERSITAS Austria, Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association)
• Committed to continuing professional development
• Years of experience abroad


My experience in the area of medical & pharmaceutical translation includes: product information (SmPC, package leaflets, labelling), informed consent forms, clinical trial agreements, pharma marketing documents, clinical trial protocols, standard operating procedures, patient information leaflets, manuals for medical devices, press releases, surgical technique guides, medical reports etc. I am also familiar with the EMA-QRD templates and EDQM standard terms.
