I am German and so my mother tongue is German and I live in Germany.
I have two completed university studies: a degree in physics (Diplom Physiker; Universität Dortmund) and a degree in engineering (Diplom-Ingenieur in the field of “Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen”; Technical University of Berlin).
Since 2001 I am working as free-lance technical and scientific translator, mainly of patents (all subject fields such as technology, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine / pharmacy, industrial engineering etc) from English (source) to German (target) for various patent law firms, especially from Luxemburg and Belgium.
Exemplary typical subject fields are inter alia: anorganic and organic chemistry, drugs / pharmaceuticals, process and coating technologies , textile industry, food conditioning, environmental technology, industrial engineering.
Before beginning my translation work in 2001 I have been working in various technology consulting firms in Germany and Luxembourg. Among these firms was also an environmental technology centre, where I worked in environmental related subject fields, especially in the following fields: waste and disposal, recycling, waste water, energy; environmental law, licensing procedures by the German Immission Law “BundesImmissonsschutzgesetz” (BImSchG).
According to these professional activities in the environmental sector I worked out several environmental related studies und publications, for example I published the book:
“Vermeidung und Verwertung von Baurestmassen und Wiederverwertung von Bauteilen: Eine Markt- und Technologiestudie unter Berücksichtigung der aktuellen rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen des KrW-/AbfG”, 1994, second edition 1996.
