what’s in a name

the text clinic is synonymous with gabriele berghammer. a linguist by training, i specialized in medical translation and communications soon after graduating from university in vienna, austria & monterey, california.

before founding the text clinic, i held various positions as a healthcare communicator, most recently as medical writer in an international clinical development department. a stint into the software industry as
technical writer and a position as multilingual translation manager have rounded off my IT and documentation expertise.

today, i am looking back on some 20 years of experience and countless publications and other documents that have left my desk.

far and away the best prize that life has to offer
is the chance to work hard at work worth doing
