Native English (GB) speaker in Birmingham, United Kingdom
"ITI Member, MSc in Organic Synthesis"
I trained as a Medical Secretary in Germany and have several years of work experience with German Medical Device supplier Raumedic. I gained my Masters in Organic Synthetic Chemistry as a mature student, My studies included a placement at GSK’s Medicinal Chemistry labs in Stevenage. In my freelance translation career I have worked exclusively in the field of Medical & Pharma since 2015.
My core business is the translation of SOPs, associated quality documentation and pharmacovigilance reports as well as clinical trials documentation. I draw on more than 15 years of not just translation experience but working in the industries that I now translate for. I am certified with the ITI to translate into English, but being bilingual I obviously have a strong understanding of my source language, including regional and Swiss and Austrian dialects.
This is how I solved a recent terminology, style, or linguistic challenge
Source language inconsistencies, idioms, regional dialects, and language variations pose translation challenges for anyone but linguists with native-level language skills. I am seeing growing levels of business in translations of audio transcripts from German into English with precisely those challenges and this is an area where I excel.
I really enjoyed working with Carola. Her communication was prompt and professional at all times and she was very responsive to our specific requirements. Importantly, her translation work was thorough and to a very high standard, while still delivering on short turnaround times. Would highly recommend.
