I am a qualified translator with more than 10 years’ experience in specialist translation. As a native speaker of English, I have an MA in German and Scandinavian Studies as well as a Master’s degree in Literary Translation. My knowledge of the languages I have learned was further enhanced through having spent time during my degrees in Germany (Tübingen) and Sweden (Linköping). After finishing my studies, I worked for several years as a translator in Germany, as a Localisation Manager for a software company and as an in-house translator at a specialist agency.
After returning to the UK, I set up as a freelance translator in Edinburgh specialising in the fields of business, IT, medical, pharmaceutical and the environment.
Experience in the respective field is an important prerequisite for high-quality translations. I would be more than happy to talk to you personally about your specific translation requirements.
