I am an independent translator specializing in medical texts.
HI, MY NAME IS VOLKAN
I started translating in high school. Then, I studied English Translation and Interpretation at Hacettepe University and I’m currently pursuing my master’s degree at the same department with a special focus on machine translation and post-editing. With an advanced theoretical knowledge and vast practical experience, I’m competent in many text types including legal and EU texts but I chose to specialize in medicine. Hacettepe University is one of the few departments offering a special course on translation of medical texts. I furthered my experience at a local translation office translating journal articles and medical device documentation. Later, I started to work for international language service providers offering services to major pharmaceutical companies. I provide translation, review/proofreading, and post-editing services for medical and EU texts. For more details on experience:

You can find me at local coffeeshops in Ankara. The capital of Turkey is rich in third-wave coffeeshops with exceptional interior design. All photos on this website are taken by me.
I consider translation training as a necessary skill for being a good translator, and I got that from the best in the field. Being a graduate of medical areas or a native speaker alone does not equal a successful translator.
My theoretical knowledge feeds my practice. I pay particular attention to local conventions and correct terminology so that the target text sounds local. I can translate any medical text with the time depending on how familiar I am with the subject. I have recently begun to provide medical device translation for a few leading manufacturers. I use current software and technologies to improve the translation process. Please note that the post-editing service will depend on how well the samples of the original text will perform in the machine translation engine.
Quality in medical translation is vital, and I’m committed to providing the best quality.
