Area Covered: London
Work Experience Summary: After completing my MA, I spent two years working for the Financial Times, during which time I produced summary translations of 25 articles per day for publication on the newspaper\'s website and translated articles on the mutual fund industry for Ignites Europe, a specialist publication for professionals in the asset management sector. The articles were also used by third-party aggregators, such as Factiva and Lexis Nexis. While working for Temple Translations, I translated a wide range of legal and financial documents at a rate of 2,500 words per day for the firm\'s clients, which include several blue-chip companies and nine of the UK\'s top ten law firms. My time at the company also involved proofreading and editing, and one project in which I translated an extremely sensitive report for a foreign government. I have also completed numerous freelance projects for both translation agencies and end clients such as the UK Tribunals Service and the Advertising Standards Authority.
