| About the translator |
I have been translating as a freelance translator for translation agencies since the end of 2012, although have also volunteered as an interpreter for sports teams representing New Zealand in Germany and the South Pacific.
Despite having lived in multiple countries, I have decided to focus on these three language pairs for translation, as my grasp of these languages allows me to pick up cultural and linguistic nuances and bring these through in my translations.
