I have been working as a full-time technical author and translator in the IT industry for 21 years.
I have extensive knowledge of writing and translating complicated texts that can easily be understood by field experts and end users alike.
I worked at SAP's headquarters for three years, first as a translator and then as a technical author. I also worked as a technical author at PeopleSoft's offices in the UK, before setting up my own company, Parpace Ltd, in 2001.
My specialist areas include SAP, telecommunications, system administration and networking. I also work on general business texts and marketing material, as well as proofreading translations from other translators and editing documentation written by non-native English speakers.
I also work for subtitling companies, checking the quality of subtitles in English and German.
I have excellent project management skills and am used to working to - and meeting - tight deadlines. I've never missed a deadline in 21 years!
