IT localisation has long been my primary specialist field: Software, hardware, telecommunications, games, manuals, help files – I am familiar with everything in this field. My CAD/CAM expertise is a particular highlight. After having translated numerous detailed manuals on AutoCAD, Pro/ENGINEER (now Creo Parametric) and Pro/MECHANICA, I completed a basic AutoCAD course to learn how the user interface of a CAD program is designed and functions.
I have also completed numerous projects in the fields of mechanical engineering, logistics, medicine/medical technology and agricultural technology/agriculture. I carry out continuous professional development in these fields by attending webinars, courses, factory tours, trade fairs, etc. And every new project provides me with additional expertise in these specialist fields.
