Bio

Education:

Employment history prior to becoming full-time freelance translator:
Almost three years spent living in Germany (Munich), working in a telecoms department at Siemens, following my degree.

Three years' experience working for a translation/language publications company in the UK (Leeds), including trips to international translation/interpreting conferences (Berlin/Paris).
Five years' translation experience working in software/telecoms companies based in the UK (Leeds), involving projects in Germany/France [including one year of travelling to Bonn every week as a project translator/administrator]
Training in programming and database design. Localisation and technical authoring skills. 

Freelancer since May 2002:
Translation experience in many subject areas:
Business: Banking, contracts, marketing, websites, presentations, brochures. 
IT: Computers, HW, SW, SW localisation, programming, telecoms.
Technical: Automotive, cars, trucks, technical manuals, GPS vehicle tracking. Medical/devices/life sciences.

Although I have experience in many areas of translation (German/French>English), I specialise in technical translations. I also undertake MTPE.
My working hours are very flexible.
