About me
I worked in large multinational companies and financial institutions as an IT professional in various different roles (programmer, business analyst, project manager and web content manager) for over 20 years.

I then became a full-time freelance translator (for over 6 years) providing expert translations in the legal, banking, finance, publishing and music publishing fields.

In April 2013 I retired from active translation work and am now enjoying some well-earned leisure time with friends and family. As a long-term project in my retirement years, I am considering compiling and publishing an electronic glossary or series of glossaries in various fields.
