About me

When I'm not working, I like to hang out in my garden and give peas a chance

Born in London (UK), bred in Lincoln (UK), educated at Cambridge, Edinburgh, Southampton, Bristol and The Open Universities. Spent a year as a research assistant in the Cambridge University Computer Laboratory, took off to travel the world, spent some years tucked away on the beautiful Isles of Scilly working in tourism... Finally moved to Germany where I live in Rhineland Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz) and combine my education and experience by working as a freelance translator.

I used Linux systems and LaTeX for all my Computer Science studies; nowadays I run a dual system with SDL Trados Studio 2017 and Microsoft Office running on Windows, or OmegaT and Libreoffice on Linux. I have LaTeX installed on both and also Texpoint on Windows. Ask me if you have other requirements ... I can handle most types of file!

I have experience translating content including e.g.: mathematics, physics, popular science, IT/software and networking, railway networks, civil engineering/construction. If your project lies outside my specialism, I can recommend a colleague to you.
