Certified PROs.jpgPatricia María Ferreira Larrieux TM-Town Profile


I am a freelance medical translator, specializing in medical devices, bariatrics, and clinical trials. I have a "regulatory way of thinking" acquired by working as an RA&QA Specialist at Johnson & Johnson Medical Italy for 10 years. I also enjoy technical translation, and I have experience in a variety of fields such as HVAC, refrigeration, electronic controls, foodservice equipment, mechanics, business, and finance. I am accurate and intellectually curious, and that's why I usually carry out terminology searches with the help of corpora, prior to starting any assignment.


I offer the following services:
medical translation:
clinical trial documentation, Informed Consent Forms, Clinical Trial Agreements, Instructions for Use, Directions for Use, regulatory documentation of Medical Devices and drugs, CE certificates, ISO certificates, Design Examination certificates, user's manuals of electromedical devices, marketing materials, promotional materials, brochures, Summary of Product Characteristics,

technical translation:
user's manuals, technical data sheets, material safety data sheets, marketing materials, sales materials, quality manuals, quality procedures.

Editing of scientific manuscripts for publication

Born in Uruguay in 1966, I hold a degree in English<>Spanish Translation obtained from the University of Uruguay in 1989.

The following year I moved to Italy.

After holding several jobs as secretary, executive secretary, and import/export associate, in 1997 I finally achieved my long-cherished dream to live on my profession. In fact, I opened a Translation Agency which I successfully managed until 2003. During this period, I entered the technical translation world by translating user’s manuals as well as technical and commercial documentation for companies in several industries (refrigeration, electronic controls, foodservice equipment, eyewear).

From 2003 to 2013 I worked for a Johnson & Johnson Company near Rome and was mainly involved with quality systems and medical devices.

Then, in May 2013 both work and personal reasons induced me to return to the freelance translating life, specializing in medical translation. In addition to resuming my technical translation activity, I have now decided to personally contribute to draw the cultures of Uruguay and Italy closer by entering the literary translation world in two language pairs: Italian into Spanish and Spanish into Italian. I am currently translating "The Big Book on the Lap-Band" into Italian.
