This month I will, for a time, be based in Europe at a conference in Paris (which is starting to feel like a second home considering the number of assignments I have had in the city and also visits to see my daughter at university over the past years!) I then have further work commitments in Amsterdam where I will be interpreting for a global wind turbine manufacturer.
I will also be carrying out assignments with more medical companies, including a pharma company leading in the production of hyaluronic acid in dermoaesthetic applications. This particular company offers a range of products whose production, from research to trading, is completely Italian. I am looking forward to finding out more about this advance in skincare innovation.
I will also be working with a biopharmaceutical firm focused on finding treatments across immunology, oncology, virology and neuroscience. These sorts of assignments are often fascinating but do require significant preparation as the language is specific and detailed. It’s vital that I have the correct words to hand – especially when it comes to complex medical terminology.
In between these contracts, with the GCSE exams now over, it will be great to spend some time with my family and feel like we can all truly relax, for a few weekends at least!
