Bio

I work as a freelance translator, specializing in medical translation but I have translated texts as diverse as medical reports and pharmaceutical documentation,  travel sites, garden, fashion and furniture sales websites, GDPR, contracts, patent documentation and technical specifications, brochures and price lists, health supplement information, language teaching apps, TV series (for subtitles), and arts reviews and I enjoy the opportunity for variety. I most commonly use Trados and Memsource but have experience of many more.

I have completed a number of online course "Clinical Trials and Medical Documentation" and plan to continue CPD.

I take pride in having my translations meticulously accurate and at the same time creating a natural sounding English text.
My background was originally scientific; over a period of fifteen years, I carried out medical research in a teaching hospital environment, part of the time in Berlin where as well as doing my own research I helped my workmates out with writing and proofreading papers and theses. I worked in the research in a Pathology department using techniques such as histopathology, immunohistochemistry, molecular pathology, PCR, FISH, DNA and RNA in-situ hybridisation with a focus on lymphoma, so I am very particularly comfortable translating those topics. Later when working for a medical devices company, I was involved with maintaining compliance records, CE marking etc and communicating these with the customers.

I have also worked extensively in administration in the wine industry and engineering. Having worked in both the UK and USA, I feel confident in translating into either language variant.

I am a published author. I was a tender coordinator for a large multi disciplinary company creating large tender submissions for international projects. I have experience in working in Adobe InDesign both in preparing interdisciplinary tenders and in publishing. My interests are sculpture and art, writing, literature, genealogy, gardening, cooking, cycling and music
