Attended eCPD webinar course: Veterinary Medicine for Translators
on 19th January and 26th January 2016
My main areas of expertise are medicine and health, but I also translate texts in music, horses and equestrian sports, popular science and general texts. I also take on proofreading commissions in Swedish.
Some examples of text types that I have worked with are: product information according to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), pharmaceutical study documentation, press releases, informative texts, directions for use and journal articles.
