Types of text I work with include scientific journal articles, press releases, clinical trial documents, and publications concerning health in developing countries. I also provide certified translations for healthcare professionals who are registering in the UK; revise for other freelance translators; and edit marketing materials for freelance translators (together with a colleague). A qualified member of ITI in both my language pairs, I have over twelve years' experience in the translation industry and have been a full-time medical translator/editor since 2009, drawing on previous employment in the healthcare sector.
