Qualified German to English Technical Translator

I am a qualified German to English translator with a wealth of experience in the translation industry.

I hold the following qualifications:

  • BSC in Modern languages (French and German) from Aston University
  • Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation in German into English with the following results:
    • General Translation: Merit
    • Technology: Pass
    • Science: Merit

I have over 7 years' experience in the translation industry. During this time, I have fulfilled many roles.

I started my career in the industry working as a translation checker for a large translation company. I checked translations of patents in many technical and scientific fields from German and French into English and marked up necessary corrections using BSI proofreading marks. Whilst in this role, I also adapted previous translations to match new source texts, completing any small translation necessary in the process.

I worked as a Project Manager on a technical translation project in the field of construction machinery for a large UK-based translation company, where I gained an insight into the importance of complex file formats such as HTML and XML within the sphere of multilingual technical documentation.

I developed this interest and my HTML, XML and CSS skills further in a later role with another UK-based translation company. I also developed an interest in computer programming and I am now learning the Java programming language in my spare time. I have some knowledge of the JavaScript and PHP web programming languages.
