I am fully qualified in
• Biology (MSci in Bioengineering - France),
• Translation (Diploma in Translation - CIoL, UK),
• Medical Interpreting (Diploma Public Service Interpreting, medical option - CIoL, UK),
• Linguistics (MA Linguistics - France)
I have an expert level in Computer Assisted Communication and Education (Certificate E-moderator - Open University, UK).
I am also a past President of the European Medical Writers Association and I work with a team of medical and technical translators if you require a manager for larger projects (French/English and all languages combinations). We operate an ISO 2002 quality system and are ISO certified (GB2003558).

I am a French mother-tongue linguist and scientist based in Manchester (UK). I translate from English (UK or US) into French (France) and specialise in the scientific and medical fields. I offer services as a translator, interpreter or project manager.

I have over fifteen years' experience of translating in the medical and scientific fields. Two major ongoing projects on which I worked recently are concerned with marketing brochures and technical manuals for medical devices and instrumentation and are CE-certified documents. As part of this work, I have recently compiled a glossary (terms, standards, EC, IVD directives) and translated over 170,000 words. In addition, I worked as a food-improvement researcher before becoming a full time linguist, this was with the INRA (Institut National de Recherche Agronomique or "National Institute of Agronomic Research") in France and I also have practical laboratory experience in the field of crop enhancement.

My studies and experience have led me to specialise in all issues related to laboratory instrumentation and medical practices: materials and products, instrument, software, hardware, electronics, electrical engineering, surgery and medical practices, industry standards and regulations, laser and light technologies, validation of PRO instruments, readability testing, etc.

While I mainly dealt with pure sciences in my scientific work, I have also received training in a number of technical domains (including IT, physics, electronics, instrumentation, machinery) and I can certify the quality of my translations in these areas. I also translate scientific patents on a regular basis (chemistry and instrumentation). As far as commercial experience is concerned, I worked in a bank for 6 years (in a part-time capacity) and I have also translated a great deal of marketing documentation and press releases.

I always work with TRADOS Studio as this enables me to handle very large projects without compromising on consistency terminology or stylistic. I am proficient with this tool and use it equally for project and terminology management; I would be happy to also offer my services as a terminology researcher - my current database includes over 450,000 strings related to the medical domain.

My base translation rate is 70 GBP per 1000 words and decreases to 65 GBP for volume over 50,000 words. For proofing and editing tasks, the rates are calculated at 40% of the translation rate; these rates include quality control procedure and document certification. For specialised documents, my translation output is approx. 2000/2500 words per day and 10,000 for editing. My clients have always found that I provide high quality services at competitive rates.

Further details are contained in my CV on this site. I would also be happy to perform a test (of up to 300 words).

Feel free to contact me if you require any additional information.

I am looking forward to our collaboration
