About me
I am a full time translator and intepreter based in Scotland. My main specialisation areas are Law, IT, Health, Business, History, Oil & Gas, Literature and Music.

I am a well respected and qualified translator with qualifications from the Chartered Institute of Linguists in translation and interpreting, in addition to academic qualifications in Business (MBA) and IT(PgD).

Since initiating my full time activity in 2001 I have attained an extensive level of experience working mainly in the legal sector. I have undertaken work for the Scottish Central Government and, given my background and experience, I have worked as an advisor in translation and interpreting for many organisations

I have also been teaching Translation and Interpreting for many years now and I have written a number of training programmes in this field, including several distance learning packages.

I also do DTP in Adobe Illustrator and Quark Xpress in ALL languages.
