Speaker:
Ralf Lemster (Germany), The language of the financial markets

Bio: Multi-disciplined experience turned into profession
Ten years of investment banking experience with Dresdner Bank AG - with a focus on trading and sales of a variety of interest rate, FX and equity products - have formed the solid foundations for my experience in the financial markets.

I have been fully independent as a translator since 1997, having passed the state examination for English in the same year. Ralf Lemster Financial Translations GmbH focuses on highly complex financial market texts, combining hands-on market experience with language skills.

Having contributed to the pilot testing phase of the OTM Online Translation Manager platform in early 2010, I have assisted LSP.net in marketing the OTM platform as a senior consultant since May.
