I am a recently retired engineering professional, detail-oriented, with extensive translation experience and the scientific background necessary to research and grasp complex material.
What I offer:
Immersion in the subject matter of German medical, scientific and engineering articles, books and patents to thoroughly understand their context and the nuances of their vocabulary. Close communication with other translators and with clients’ staff where collaboration is called for. Idiomatically correct English renderings at a level of technical quality fit for publication, in a style that would be typical of the foreign author’s American counterpart.
