Bio
email address: dr.jamesherbert@gmail.com

I am a retired American medical doctor with 20 years practice as a Family Practitioner in the United States. Established in the south of France since 2000 (wife is French), I translate French into English, specializing in the Life Sciences, as well as proofread documents as an SME (Subject Matter Expert). I have had extensive experience since 2004 in the translation, proofreading, and editing of many types of medical and scientific documents. I have edited numerous medical studies destined for publication, translated medical records, pharmaceutical brochures and PILs, informed consent forms (ICFs), reports of new medical devices, clinical studies, medical articles, general science articles and more. I am familiar with style guides such as the American Medical Association's Manual of Style, the Chicago Manual of Style, and others. I also work regularly as a translator/medical reviewer for one of the largest translation agencies in the world.

I am compliant with EN 15038 guidelines. My CAT tools include MemoQ, SDL TRADOS, Wordfast and Translation Workspace. And as an editor/proofreader, I have a particular feel for clarity, precision, and flow. I write well, and have a long-standing interest in writing; I was the literary editor of the campus art magazine as an undergraduate.

I don't miss deadlines - if I don't think I can get the job done on time, I'll refuse it. I take pride in producing a polished, professional document.
