I started working as a professional translator in 2008, specialising in science and technology. My preferred language pairs are:
German <> English
French > English
My native language is German, but I'm equally comfortable in British English. I am also fluent in French.
I'm currently working towards taking the Diploma in Translation in January 2009.
My professional qualifications include a PhD in Physics (UK) and a "Diplom Physiker" degree (Germany). In addition, I am a Microsoft Certified Professional in Design and Implementation of Databases in SQL Server.
During my career I have translated numerous technical and scientific publications, written my degree dissertation in German, and my PhD thesis and several scientific papers in English.
I lived in the United Kingdom for 9 years, before moving to France in January 2007.
