MEDICAL WRITING: STRUCTURED, INFORMATIVE, EASY TO UNDERSTAND
Whether it’s patient information leaflets, consent forms, brochures or articles for newspapers or journals, as a trained nurse and translator of medical texts, I specialise in medical language. At the same time, I am also very adept at making medical texts accessible, and delivering complex content in an interesting and understandable way. With these sorts of texts, it is important to keep in mind the text type, the audience and the purpose as well as the guidelines given by the publisher or determined by the medium (the use of the IMRaD format, for example).
As a nurse, I observed on a daily basis how information, when delivered well, had a significant impact on patient recovery. If patients were provided with information that was transparent and comprehensible, their compliance – and the likelihood that treatment would be successful – increased significantly. Yet even a specialist audience prefers information (such as significant research findings) to be presented in a way that is both clear and comprehensible.
If you are looking for a medical text that matches these criteria, just give me a call or write me an email and we can discuss in detail any questions, requests or requirements you might have.
ARTICLES WITH IMPACT
Do you feel like something is missing from your next publication? Are you looking for a report, feature, interview or biographical sketch for your journal, newspaper or specialist journal – something your readers will find useful and interesting? Perhaps you will find what you are looking for hier (prices are negotiable; please ensure that you observe copyright restrictions).
I also accept commissions for original articles. I write about a range of topics and, in terms of text type and scope, will work with you to develop an article that aligns with your vision. Here as well, I specialise in medical texts. As a freelance journalist and translator with a medical background, I am very interested in new developments in this area, and I am able to write about these topics in a way that is thorough but still easy to understand. I am, however, more than happy to compose texts about areas outside of medicine.
What do I value? Thorough research. Fair and respectful conduct. Constructive criticism. Specialised language for specialised audiences. Open and honest communication. Maintaining journalistic integrity. Solidarity with my colleagues across the world. In short, the guidelines for journalistic work as laid out by the German Press Code.
