I have published scientific papers of my own, so I understand the process of scientific publication from firsthand experience. I strive to write technically precise and well-written text, and I have a knack for hunting down the appropriate translation of even the most specialized terms. I do not translate word-for-word, but rather write a text that flows well in the target language, while maintaining the meaning of the source. I specialize in scientific and medical documents, but I can translate any general-purpose text.
