Professional translations from a subject-matter expert

Environmental translation

My in-depth and wide-ranging knowledge of environmental issues makes me a specialist in environmental translation.

The environment is an umbrella term for a vast number of topics. A good translator should know them all, from climate issues, ecosystems or natural resources to conservation methods and their influence on human behaviour. Texts can be informative or specialized – or both – depending on the audience. That means that, besides technical knowledge, translators have to master different registers.

Here are some of the documents I have translated

  • Management plans for natural areas
  • Manuals for wind turbines and solar-energy facilities.
  • Urban waste-management plans
  • Environmental impact assessments
  • Local Agenda 21 development projects
  • Sustainable urban planning schemes
  • Sustainability studies
  • Brochures on ethical consumption
