I am a native UK English speaker and have been based in Zurich, Switzerland since 2009. I am fluent in German and French. I have a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies and German Studies from the University of Manchester and a postgraduate diploma in Translation and Conference Interpreting from Heriot-Watt University. I am also a qualified member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting for both French and German into English translation, and a member of LS2 Life Sciences Switzerland. At present, I am taking the final two modules towards a Bachelor of Science in Health Science from the Open University (graduation expected in 2021) to add to my knowledge in the area of life science.

I offer translation, post-editing and revision from French and German into English, as well as proofreading of English texts. I worked as an in-house translator at a major language services provider for 13 years before going freelance and have extensive experience working with a wide range of clients in finance and life science, among other areas.

The fields I cover include:

  • Investment banking: investment studies, market reports, corporate finance

  • Private banking: performance reporting, investment funds, asset management

  • Retail banking: securities/account management, bank-specific IT applications, retail products

  • Life science: human medicine, clinical trials, biotech, medtech, pharma, logistics, labelling and packaging, manufacturing, regulatory affairs, SmPCs, PILs, SOPs, technical chemicals, diagnostics, research & development, specialist scientific texts

  • Corporate communications: investor relations, corporate governance, commercial management, company organisation, directives, human resources, internal communications, controlling, compliance, risk management

  • Annual reports
