Bio

I have been working as a medical translator on a full-time basis since the start of 2004.

I am a native speaker of English, and am familiar with medical and biomedical terminology in general, and have specialist knowledge of immunology, cell biology, toxicology and pharmaceutical science, including regulatory issues.

I receive regular commissions from the UK, Europe and United States to translate documents relating to clinical trials and regulatory pharmacology, SOPs, biomedical journal articles and hospital discharge reports out of Polish, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, French, German and Spanish.

I have a PhD in biomedical science and a postgraduate diploma in library and information science. Prior to going freelance, I had 15 years work experience as a scientist and information specialist.

Previous to that employment, I spent five years in Zagreb, Croatia. Among other things, I translated a variety of scientific and library/information science documents from Croatian, Serbian and Slovenian into English. I also edited, proofread and abstracted English texts. My clients included several academic journals, a pharmaceutical company, an information centre and numerous individual scientists and students.

With respect to other interests, I have a passionate interest in Egyptology, and am interested in classical, folk and world music. Since moving to Wales, I have started learning Welsh and enjoy immersing myself in the culture of Cymru Gymraeg.

Please note that scammers have stolen my CV to tout for jobs. If you
receive an email from krys.williams at gmail dot com asking for
translation work, this is NOT from me! A further scammer emailing under
the name of Görel Pallinder is using the contents of my CV and includes the above profile text in the email.

I wait for clients to contact me and never send out on-spec marketing messages. You can read more about this type of scam here: http://www.translator-scammers.com/
