The press release described the successful conclusion of two animal trials of a patented candidate molecule for the treatment of dry eye syndrome and submission of the requisite applications for approval to commence clinical trials.
An instruction manual for an innovative immunoassay system for the detection of anti-HCV antibodies, covering technical instructions for use and guidance for the interpretation of results. This was for a French company with a global presence in the research and clinical diagnostics sectors.

My profile on LinkedIn

A native French speaker, I am an independent translator and interpreter based in the German city of Berlin. After completing my Master’s degree in conference interpreting and translation at the University of Leeds, in the UK, I went on to specialise in life sciences, working from English and German into French. I am fascinated by medicine, marine biology and the conservation of the millions of species that populate the natural world.

I believe in learning a language through immersion in its source culture and have spent the last 10 years living abroad with this purpose in mind. I am a member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and its French and German sister organisations.

My profile on LinkedIn

I’m a Masters-qualified translator, working from French into English, and have a particular interest in small-molecule discoveries and more widely, the business of biotechnology. I moved into translation in 2012 after a 15-year career with a multinational B2B publisher, so am well-placed to understand the challenges that you face as you approach new international markets.

I’m a great believer in the importance of life-long learning and attend a variety of subject-specific and business-focused conferences and events every year, to hone my knowledge and stay abreast of business trends. I have associate memberships of a number of UK-based professional bodies which also help in achieving this aim.

My profile on LinkedIn

I’ve been a freelance translator working from French and German into English since 2011, and specialise in the medical, pharmaceutical and business fields, with a particular interest in medical devices. I pride myself on my attention to detail and knowledge of the French and English biotech industries, both of which enable me to provide the highest quality translations.

Born and raised in northern England, I completed a Masters in Translation and Interpreting Studies at the University of Manchester before moving to Reims, France, in 2013. I’m a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and the Société Française des Traducteurs, and I place great importance on CPD, as this allows me to stay up to date with the latest industry developments.
