CV/Resume English (PDF)
Translated many texts in the areas of meteorology, geography, administration, finance (audit reports), technology, law (patents and contracts), IT (hardware and software), trams, trains, welding, technical specifications, user guides, operating procedures and calls to tender.

Worked exclusively in patents for 18 months, love computers and have held numerous short term and freelance contracts with the World Meteorological Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization (International Trademarks and Patent Cooperation Treaty), the World Health Organization and the United Nations Convention for Combatting Desertification. 91% of the work I have done comes from clients/agencies who have already given me work before.

I've been living in Switzerland since 1999.
