About me
http://www.bdue.deI am a native speaker of American English, long resident in Germany, with a degree in chemistry from Occidental College in Los Angeles as well as several years of graduate work in the field and experience in adhesive formulation using statistical optimization methodologies, polymer chemistry (including silicones), medical device development, FDA regulatory approval, educational software development, database design and IT consulting for DMS, archiving and web-based ASP applications. For about 20 years I translated German<->English in support of academic, research or consulting activities until I moved to Germany and discovered while working as an IT consultant the difficulty of obtaining high-quality, timely translations for my clientele. I began to fill that gap myself and soon found that I enjoyed the role of communication facilitator with translation more than my official duties as a consultant and developer. After convincing the aliens authority in Germany to allow me to work independently (a process that took several years), I became a full-time freelance translator.

My favorite areas of translation are: software localization, particularly of document management, content management and archiving applications; Microsoft technologies and programming environments; web applications; chemistry, especially polymer chemistry; environmental topics, including waste processing and recycling; sustainability reports and anything having to do with human rights issues.

I maintain a Facebook page, a translation blog (Translation Tribulations) and a Twitter feed (as GermanENTrans) for sharing ideas, information and experiences relevant to the profession and contribute similar content elsewhere.

In November 2012 I published the first third-party book on translation productivity using memoQ 6 from Kilgray Translation Technologies:
