I am a professional translator working from Dutch, German, French and Afrikaans into UK English.
My specialist areas for translation work are Animal Health & Veterinary Medicine and Psychology. I also offer proofreading and editing services for texts written in English by non-native speakers.
I work on a wide range of written documents, including research papers, case studies, product information, dissertations, articles in trade and professional journals, web texts, lectures, presentations and books.
Clients include specialist translation agencies, through which I work for many multinationals in the fields of animal health and nutrition, veterinary diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. Direct clients are mainly publishers, academics, researchers and veterinarians. I also continue to work for former employers such as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London.
I am a Member of the UK's Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), Society of Authors, Translators’ Association (Society of Authors), and Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). I also work as a volunteer for the non-profit organisation Translators without Borders.
