Now that I am semi-retired (at 49), after a career in various aspects of the financial world, I like to continue to take on some projects from home. Currently, I do freelance telephone interpreting for Language Line Services (clients include NHS, police forces in UK and USA, HMOs in USA, corporate customer services departments and helpdesks for a.o. Sony, American Express, various airlines), as well as undertaking translation projects for various providers.
My strong points at a glance:
- Language pairs for translation:
o written: English<>Dutch, Flemish and French, English<German, English<Afrikaans
o spoken: English<>Dutch, Flemish, French (incl. Swiss, African and Canadian), German
- over 10 years of writing and translating financial/corporate press releases and annual reports for PLCs
- stickler for accent, cultural surrounding, spelling, grammar and punctuation, therefore also a good proofreader
- specialist fields include: finance, insurance and banking, healthcare including pharma, legal (contract law, PACE)
- stress resistant, stick to deadlines
