Professional practices Derek Smith endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I have been closely involved with Germany since the early 1980s and have been living and working in Aachen for the last 20 years. My main areas of expertise are in business and technology, especially printing and telecommunications.

After receiving my honours degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Surrey University in England, I worked for several software companies in England and Germany, both as a software developer and, with increasing frequency, as a linguist. Main responsibilities included translation of all software, documentation and marketing material, as well as customer contact and pre-sales activities.

I am a certified TEFL / TESOL teacher, with Business English specialisation and teach Business English in Aachen.

I am an English native and speak fluent German.
