Passionate about hotels, gastronomy and marketing, these are the domains in which I started my career. Turning to translation in 2001, my skills as a translator and proof-reader are reinforced by professional hands-on experience, training and qualifications in these specialist areas:
HOTELS AND TOURISM:
after completing an MSc in International Hospitality Management
, I gained valuable experience in all departments
of a busy 4* hotel, including front office, food and beverage, housekeeping
- even maintenance
! I finished my career in the hotel industry as a sales and marketing manager
close to London, promoting four manor house hotels and their services.
FOOD AND GASTRONOMY:
I have been trained and worked in two professional kitchens
, numerous restaurants and received training in nutrition
and food hygiene
. I have worked alongside award-winning chefs to market three gourmet restaurants
in the UK.
Working within the hospitality industry, I was responsible for marketing four hotels as business and leisure destinations. I compiled the global sales strategies
for the hotels, conducted market research
and was responsible for advertising, promotion and PR
I have worked in administrative positions for companies based in both the UK and France. Besides general business correspondence
, I have been responsible for preparing presentations and reports
, compiling training manuals and user guides
, and writing website content
The majority of my translation projects comes from the above fields. However, I love the diversity of my work and I take on projects from other domains with much enthusiasm.
More detailed information about my education, translation projects and industry experience can be found in my CV, which I would be pleased to forward to you upon simple request. Translations, editing, proof-reading, rewriting.....
What else do I offer? * My personal background:
I was born in England and educated in Britain and France. I have spent a total of 14 years studying and working in Germany and France, reinforcing my language skills and gaining a deep understanding of the French and German cultures. My geographical knowledge of the two countries is extensive - a result of my curious mind and my passion for travel.
I am now living in Germany with my French husband, our two trilingual children and our adorable scottie dog. Due to my personal circumstances and my international client base, I operate in a trilingual environment on a daily basis. Britain and France are never far away and I stay in touch with what’s happening there via the media and regular visits ‘home’.
And to wind down…
I’m passionate about cooking, photography, art, sailing, swimming and gardening. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, curling up in front of a fire or lacing up my walking boots on a sunny day. I read a wide range of literature, enjoy the challenge of cryptic crosswords and travel as much as time and money allow.
