Professional practices Anna Haxen endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
If you are looking for a scientific/medical translator who regards difficult, obscure terms as a welcome challenge rather than an annoying problem, you have come to the right place.

My specialty is the really complicated, scientific stuff, e.g. biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics, written by scientists for scientists. In addition, my Danish skills (grammar, spelling, style) are excellent.

For the past 6 years, I have been translating mainly in the fields of medicine, dentistry, and chemistry, and have gained extensive experience in:

Clinical trial protocols
Summaries of product characteristics
IFUs for medical/dental devices
Material safety data sheets, including exposure scenarios
Patent claims (pharmaceuticals/chemistry)

I have access to the EDQM Standard Terms and am experienced in the use of QRD templates, MedDRA terms, etc., GHS, REACH, etc., as well as standard patent claim terminology.

I use Wordfast (Classic and Pro), Trados 2007/2009, MemoQ 5.0.60, Across 5.00.0, or agency-specific software and/or web-based tools.

I live in Denmark, and, having translated part-time for many years alongside my work as a lab technician, I took the leap in July 2011 and am now a full-time translator.
