I aim to bring a writer's flair to every translation project ensuring that the reader gets more than just a translation, but an effective, well-written communication.
I have been working as a freelance French / German to English translator for the past five years and hold an MA in Translation Studies with distinction from the University of Warwick. I was educated in France where I lived for more than ten years, and speak fluent French. I have a first class degree in English and German, the nationally recognised journalism qualification, the NCTJ’s NCE, and the ACTDEC accredited TESOL teaching qualification.
Recent translations have included employment contracts for multinationals, telecommunications contracts, tourism leaflets, business plans, annual reports, training manuals and a number of international development reports and other related projects.
I started my career as a print journalist and worked for a range of regional newspapers before going on to manage communications for a range of organisations. I have worked for a marketing and communications agency supplying copywriting, editing, proofreading and media relations to public and private sector clients.
