Professional practices Hilary Wilson endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
French-English qualified translator, specialising in science. MA in translating with distinction, University of Salford, UK.

Background in natural sciences (BSc Pure and Applied Ecology, MSc in Marine Environmental Protection and PhD in Biological Oceanography), with extensive knowledge of ecology (terrrestrial and marine), marine sciences and modelling natural systems.

Qualified practising physiotherapist with 20 years experience, specialised in paediatrics, with good general medical knowledge: paediatrics, orthopaedics, neurology, respiratory medicine, orthotics and rehabilitation. I now work as a physiotherapist more than I translate, working with children with lifelong disabilities.

Having grown up in France from early childhood and been educated in France to university level, I am fully bilingual in French-English, and have a good insight into both French and British culture. This enables me to have a sound understanding of the source, whichever way I translate. I also have a good knowledge of Spanish, some German and basic Welsh.

Specialised in:
• Natural environment and conservation
• Marine sciences / biological oceanography
• Plant and animal ecology
• Medicine: paediatrics, neurology, respiratory medicine, orthopaedics, orthotics, sports medicine, rehabilitation, posture management and disability.

My scientific and medical background is invaluable in my translating work; I also have access to specialists in many other scientific areas.

As a previous researcher, I have excellent skills in writing, editing and proofreading and have published scientific papers.
