About me
3 years professional translation experience Master in Translation from the University of Exeter Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Cognitive Science Linguistic Background: I am from a French household, but almost all my education was carried out in English schools abroad or in Britain. A large part of my childhood was spent in Venezuela, where I learnt Spanish. I also spent 2 years living and working in Spain as a teacher of English as a second language after university. I am therefore fluent in English, French and Spanish.

Professional Experience: I have been working as a freelance translator for the last 2 years, carrying out regular translation work for leading translation agencies including SDL International. I have also translated for several NGO's, including Medecins sans Frontieres and Blue Ventures Marine Conservation. In 2010 I spent a year working as an Interpreter for Multilingua Agency, in Exeter. During my Masters in Translation, I acquired in-depth knowledge about translation theory and the translation profession, including the use of CAT tools like SDL Trados. I also gained substantial practical experience in translation, which I am currently building on in a freelance capacity. So far, my translation work includes a wide range of materials from public health reports to bicycle manuals.

I specialize in the fields of psychology, environmental science and tourism.
