Military / Defence

I am a certified French military translator (FFSB, 1992-1994) with one year of experience as technical translator, detached to Bundeswehr Ordnance officers (Feuerwerker und Wehrtechniker), specialising in disposal of unexploded ordnance
. I have  researched and developed scenarios for tactical tank combat simulations between 1998 and 2005, using technical and historical archives. Between 1999 and 2002, I have also worked as technical consultant to CDEB, the French Armor documentation centre, part of EAABC Armor School, Saumur, France. I have been registered at Potsdam Militärgeschichliches Forschungsamt (MGFA Potsdam) and the Royal Geographical Society (RGS London) where I researched documentation and maps for scenario design. At Saumur, I have been in direct contact with the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung Koblenz, Patton Armor Museum, Bovington and  the Czech Military Technical Museum LEŠANY (thanks to Dr Pavel Klinek, Institute of Aerospace Engineering, Prague).
