I am a DVM (owner of a pet practice for 18 years), a Qualified Member of ITI having passed my exam first time round in the Medicine and pharmaceuticals area, and a Subject Matter Expert in medical translation, with 17+ years spent translating EMA centralized procedures, trials, surveys, IVRS/IWRS, ICFs, medical softwares, textbooks and other medical topics

Being both a senior specialized translator and a Subject Matter Expert, I can avoid jargon traps and translate without losing sight of compliance to e.g. QRD templates, EU Medical Directives, ATC-codes, ICD-10, medDRA and Meddev databases, EDQM, ISOs, etc.

Ongoing projects:
Italian translator for the app Atlante di anatomia umana by Visible Body
