Bio
I was raised in a German-speaking home in southern Africa where I attended both German- and English-medium schools. Thus, I consider myself a native speaker of both English and German.
I studied at the University of Cape Town, obtaining my MSc degree in chemistry. Since 1995, I worked as a research chemist for 5 chemical/pharmaceutical companies in South Africa, the United Kingdom and Germany. Appart from R&D projects, my duties also involved the translation of patents, SOPs, safety data sheets, study protocols and adverse drug reaction reports.
Four years ago I decided to reduce my working hours and took on translation work on a part-time basis. Depending on the project, I am also able to translate full-time in consultation with my employer.
