I have had a long and varied career in language services and business. I have taken on leadership roles in many business activities, including sales management, customer service, and as the head of marketing. My coursework in translation has been an asset at every stage of my career. For example, as a Testoterm commercial officer, I translated many advertisements and operating instructions for digital electronic measuring devices. In addition to marketing for the electronics industry, I have provided services in the fields of chemical industry, fashion, and engineering. Lately I have been working on marketing and educational material. With the exception of a brief in-house position with a transportation firm, where I translated human resources, agreement, training and educational material, I have been a professional freelance translator and language service provider for twenty years.
