Professional and fully bilingual freelance translator, working from German into English and vice versa, specialising in science & technology. I have over nine years’ in-house experience translating in a range of fields, although primarily scientific & technical.
Graduate in chemistry and German (BSc. Joint Hons.) from the University of Keele, followed by 5 years in research, including periods working at BASF in Ludwigshafen/Rhein and the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart. My language services also extend to proofreading, technical English training at a range of German companies and private English tuition.

My experience as a research scientist also taught me to work in an accurate and reliable way, working to deadlines and paying great attention to detail.
After gaining essential experience in the translation industry as an in-house translator, I now offer my services on a freelance basis.
