I have been translating freelance since 1982 and have wide-ranging experience in finance, electronics and law, particularly semiconductors, patents and litigation support. I worked for many years with securities firms exclusively, have been a staff translator at the US Department of Justice (Antitrust), and taught technical, legal and business translation at the graduate school of the Monterey Institute of Internal Studies (now Middlebury College).
