I am a native English speaker, translate from German to English and specialise in German medical translation.
I am also an emeritus professor in medical sciences from the University of New South Wales in
Sydney, with many years of experience in medical research and teaching. I did my PhD at Stanford
University followed by an Alexander von Humboldt research fellowship and a sabbatical year
in Munich. I have published extensively in international journals throughout my career, so
that I have an excellent knowledge of medical and scientific terminology and a great deal
of experience in writing, editing and proofreading medical, scientific and technical English.
My wife is a German native speaker and physician, who has practised for many years in the UK, Germany and Australia. Silke is also an alumna of the London Business School, having completed a Sloan MSc in Management, Leadership and Strategy. With her background (and patience!) she is the best proofreader one could wish for.
