Professional practices Sarah Silva endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a professional German to English translator specialising in chemistry. My degree in chemistry and subsequent industrial experience, including in the pharmaceutical industry, has given me an in-depth knowledge of specialised terminology which is vital in scientific translation. Understanding your subject matter enables me to produce translations that make sense and read well to your target audience.

I am a Qualified Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and hold an MA in Translation (distinction) and a BSc (Hons) 2:1 in Chemistry and German. The latter included one year of residency in Germany where I studied both subjects, worked and immersed myself in the culture of the country.

Recent projects have included translations relating to:
coating additives
pharmaceutical regulatory documentation
adverse drug reaction case studies
