I have been a member (MITI) of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) since 1998.
In 2003, the ITI launched the Professional Support Group (PSG), a mentoring course for new start-ups in the translation industry. I served as a tutor on the PSG from its inception in 2003 until 2011.
I am a supporting member of the VDSI (Society of German Safety Engineers).
In 2008, I supported my colleague Christina Guy in setting up the Stridonium network of professional translators, of which I am still a member.
