About me

MY BACKGROUND


I am a native speaker of English with a BA (Hons) in French and Russian; I also translate from Spanish and German to English, and have been translating on part-time basis for the last 5 years, mainly in the fields of poetry and literature, with additional work on correspondence and business texts. I have recently forged successful collaborations with proz.com colleagues (which can be verified via the WWA section in my profile) and have assisted a Proz colleague on a voluntary basis with transcription queries for a series of programmes broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

PROFESSIONAL CREDO


All work will be completed to a high standard of accuracy and presentation and confidentiality will be thoroughly respected. Deadlines are kept and no job will be undertaken if there is any doubt that these requirements cannot be met.
