I am currently a translation student at the University of Leipzig. I have already passed all exams exept for my thesis on the English and German terminology of surgical instruments. In Dec 2010, I'll receive my academic degree ("Diplom", corresponds to master").
Apart from being very experienced in terminology work (due to my long-term work as student assistant and two interns) and the field of surgical instruments, I have expert knowledge in engineering and construction/civil engineering and a strong interest in medecine and engineering in general.
At the moment, I am an intern at the translation management department of Dräger Medical in Lübeck. My work there helps me expand my medical knowledge on the fields of respiratory care, anesthesiology, monitoring and incubators.
I am not only looking for translation jobs, but also for colleagues in Leipzig (where I'll be moving to and the end of 2010) and elsewhere who are interested in cooperating with me.
