Professional practices Titia Meesters endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I translate Pharmaceutical and other medical texts, including EMA Product Information packages (SmPC/Label/PIL), Clinical Trial related texts (Procedures, Investigator's Brochures, Informed Consents), Clinical Laboratory related texts (IFUs, manuals, procedures etc.), and scientific papers and other scientific texts in the pharmaceutical and medical fields. As a former scientific researcher and by now a broadly experienced translator, I am completely familiar with the technical terminology of these fields.

I also perform Cognitive Debriefing interviews for Linguistic Validation, and other patient interviews in the scope of clinical trials.

I have a degree ('Dutch Doctoral exam' or MSc) in Biology/ Biochemistry, and a PhD from Wageningen Agricultural University (1988) at the Dept. of Microbiology, and I worked as a post-doc researcher at the Dept. of Biochemistry of Nijmegen University, on several molecular-biological and immunological studies of auto-immune diseases.
After having finished these studies, I did a Higher Vocational Study in Translating English to Dutch v.v. (ITV, Utrecht, The Netherlands). Since 1999, I have been working as a freelance translator, since 2003 as a specialized translator of pharmaceutical and IVD documents as described above.

Please contact me for detailed information and rates.
