Description

Professional, fully bilingual freelance translator, working from German into English and vice versa, specialising in science & technology. I have over nine years’ in-house experience translating in a range of fields, although primarily scientific and technical. Graduate in chemistry and German (BSc. Joint Hons.) from the University of Keele, followed by 5 years in research, including periods working at BASF in Ludwigshafen/Rhein as well as the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart. My language services also extend to proofreading, technical English training at a range of German companies and private English tuition. My bilingual upbringing from infancy, my joint honours degree in chemistry and German from Keele University as well as my time spent in research in England and Germany have provided me with a wealth of linguistic and practical scientific & technical skills and knowledge needed to produce accurate, idiomatic technical translations both from German into English as well as from English into German. My experience as a research scientist also taught me to work in an accurate, reliable way, paying great attention to detail. After gaining essential experience in the translation industry as an in-house translator, I now offer my services on a freelance basis. As well as completing all projects assigned to me within the deadlines set, I have extensive experience with CAT tools, having used Trados for almost 10 years and memoQ for over 2 years. Although I continue to translate a wide range of texts, I specialise in the following areas: - Aerospace technology - Automotive engineering - Architecture/building - Chemistry and pharmaceuticals - Contracts - Electrical engineering/Mechatronics - Environmental technology - IT - Plant and automation engineering - Process engineering - Scientific research - Shipping & inland waterways - Technical/functional specifications - Trade fairs - Website localisation

Successful Freelance Translator recently conducted a short survey to find out whether translators are satisfied with what they have now, what they think about their current rates, workload, promotion and marketing for translation services, and use of personal websites. Some answers were predictable, proving Simon's initial assumptions, other answers were astonishing. Take a look at the results here: http://successfulfreelancetranslator.com/translators-are-not-satisfied-with-rates/

Hope you all had a good Easter? How has Q1 been for you? Are you satisfied with your current rates and workload? That's what Simon wants to know! Here you can find a short survey, just 5 questions to help create more interesting and topical content that will be useful for you and other translators who are fighting for their place in the sun. http://goo.gl/forms/q3J1Zk30by
