Professional practices Catherine Savino endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I have experience in translation in the following domains: advertising, engineering, information technology, computers, CVs, and medicine. The majority of the work I do is in the medical field including translations for pharmaceutical products, hospital reports, physician surveys, and clinical trial documentation, among others.

I completed my undergraduate degree in French with a minor in Linguistics during which time I completed one year of independent study in translation (French to English) at the University of Michigan. In 2013, I completed my Master's degree in Linguistics from Wayne State University and I am currently working on a Certificate in French to English Translation through NYU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies, which I will complete in Spring 2017. Courses I have completed are:

- Introduction to Translation
- Medical Translation I
- International Organizations
- Introduction to CAT Tools

Additionally, I have extensive, hands-on experience in computers and Information Systems and am versed in both Mac and PC terminology and networking. I have more than 15 years of experience in advertising/marketing for major corporate communications firms in the automotive industry as well as experience in business communications outside the automotive domain. The types of projects I have worked on in this capacity include large and small scale live events (from high profile press conferences to internal employee meetings), videos and web-based training programs.
