Medical translator and editor

If you need  a medical translator and editor, or if you need help in proofreading English texts from a native English speaker,  I can help you. I worked for many years as a neuroscientist and researcher, and have considerable experience in writing, editing, proofreading and publishing medical and technical texts. I also translate from medical texts from German to English. You can  find more information at Tracey Medical Translations or Tracey Medizinische Übersetzungen.
