About me
I qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Bristol Veterinary School, UK in 1999. I then spent 2 years working full time as a vet in "mixed" practice (i.e. all species) in the UK before moving to France where I worked for 2 years as a locum veterinary surgeon before starting to translate on a freelance basis. I specialize in medical texts of all types and particularly in veterinary texts with a particular interest in the world of equitation.

I also run a 14 Ha equine recovery centre specialising in mental and physical rehabilitation for horses with behavioural problems and chronic injuries / diseases, using natural horsemanship, natural trimming, and natural boarding techniques.

To date I have translated over 5 million words, principally human medical journal articles in subjects as diverse as AIDS, drug addiction, infectious and parasitic diseases, cardiology, surgical implants, oncology and chemotherapy, analgesia and anesthesia, dentistry, hip, knee and elbow replacements, veterinary articles. I also have extensive experience with cosmetic texts.
I charge on average 0.10€ per source word and average 3,000 words per day.
