If you need something written in good, accurate, grammatical, vibrant, sassy, tailor-made English - try me. If it's technical - nuts, bolts, machines, that sort of thing - I'm probably not for you.
I won a Major Open Scholarship to New College, Oxford, where I read Modern Languages. Mensa measures my IQ at 160. Please don't hold this against me.
If you have a project that interests me, I'll give it some time and effort. You can pay me by the hour, day or project. If you want me to do some sort of test or trial, I shan't charge you for it. If I find it boring, I shan't do it at all
* I translate material related to business, finance, investment, politics, current affairs, anything as long as it's not technical - from German, Russian and French into English.
Area Covered: Anywhere. I live in south-western France.
