I am a freelance translator and specialise in medical translations. With an interest in epidemiology and a background in clinical coding, I understand disease processes and health procedures. I will get the terminology right when I translate your medical documents – irrespective of the discipline.

I proof-read reviews of randomised controlled trials and copy-edit educational medical texts for a global network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health from over 120 countries. They work together to produce evidence-based health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Their vision is a world of improved health where decisions about health and health care are based on research evidence and they strive to make this evidence accessible to everyone, everywhere in the world through systematic reviews published in their online library.
What is a clinical coder?
A clinical coder is a health information management professional who assigns codes to narrative descriptions of patients’ diseases, operations and other health procedures in accordance with the classification system ICD-10, recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO), to allow for easy storage, retrieval and analysis of health data.
As a clinical coder I translate into code the treatment of solid tumours and haematological disorders for a chemotherapy day clinic. At a 530-bed private hospital, I also capture clinical data through my coding in the areas of general, cardiac, ENT, maxillofacial, plastic and orthopaedic surgery, IVF, gastroenterology, urology, obstetrics and neurosurgery. I keep abreast of developments in medicine and changes to clinical coding practice in equal measure.
I read medical and operation reports on a daily basis so that my work as a clinical coder informs my translation while the breadth of medical translation in turn benefits my coding practice.Check out my Profile (Clinical Coding) here
