I have over 10 years experience in German, with a special interest in translating scientific and other technical literature. I have translated German scientific papers into English on freshwater biology during a work placement at the Freshwater Biological Association in Cumbria, England. Having extensively mastered the language styles and conventions, I am now building up an extensive vocabulary of technical terms to keep dictionary consultation to a minimum. For about half as long, I have also been studying Dutch in my spare time and my standard is now almost on a par with my German. Again, I am mainly interested in translating Dutch technical texts, since I am generally scientifically minded.
