I'm a translator/localizer/localization consultant permanently based in Berlin, Germany.

One of my most interesting recent activities was centred around the localization of a highly complex, multi-platform IT system for public transport into 14 different European languages and dialects. The program documentation and online help system associated with the system was translated into four different languages. The IT system contains localizibles in a variety of architectures, XML, MFC, JAVA, Oracle and various legacy formats. I work with a complex change management system based on a Subversion (SVN) source control database.

I managed the entire system created to do this localization work, from terminology definition (in cooperation with our project and documentation teams), through UI and documentation localization up to and including QA. I often needed to coordinate with developers to ensure the internationalization standards that these products require.

In these activities I have picked up extensive XML skills using XPath and XSLT, I have programmed several complex internal tools using VB .NET and I can use a variety of translation, localization and document management tools. I have good experience planning, designing and programming automated routines for such tools.

I have also worked in a variety of translation areas, including Contract Law, intellectual property, shipping, commerce, accountancy, etc.

I'm very aware of quality management needs in complex organizations and am competent in workflow design and management.

I originally trained as a philosopher and am keen to keep my interest in the subject, especially in areas where philosophy overlaps with biology.
