Until 1975 I worked as a research scientist in the UK in the fields of polymer chemistry and solid state science applied to electronic components.
In 1975 I emigrated to France where, as a qualified professeur certifié, I have taught English for specific purposes in a university institute. I have worked many times alongside colleagues having to publish scientific articles in English, and translated several scientific and mathematical works and works on decision theory for various publishers. I have also translated several works on Egyptology.

I am now retired from full-time teaching and devote myself to translation, French to English. I translate all types of text except legal and financial topics.
Since joining the ProZ network, over 95% of my translation work has been offered to me unsolicited by agencies and private individuals in research and industry, all of them returning subsequently with further projects.

My spare time activities are gardening, reading, (particularly poetry), DIY, electronics, collecting paintings and some cookery.
