My Medical Career
Ever since I was a little boy I had a taste for foreign languages. I loved to watch Italian cartoons or tried to translate jokes inside the Carambar wrapper (a French candy). Perhaps the reason I ended up studying Medicine “en français” at the University of Geneva where I graduated with the “Swiss Federal Diploma of Physician” in 1999. Shortly after graduation, I moved to the UK where I worked for 15 years as a doctor for the NHS, gaining experience in various specialities such as geriatrics, surgery, paediatrics, gynaecology, emergency medicine and general practice.
My Freelance Linguist Career
Translating medical reports from French or German into English was initially only on a voluntary basis for the NHS but has gradually become a big part of my professional life, and I started charging for my services. A particular interest of mine are the new health information technologies and the processing of medical data for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.Having left the hustle and bustle of London, I am now living part-time in Slovenia, working as a freelance translator, cycling through nature, making cheesecake and getting familiar with my first Slavic language.
