Qualifications
Post Grad. Diploma in Technical and Specialized Translation - Merit
~~~ University of Westminster ~~~

BA(Hons) French and Italian with Literary and Cultural Studies - 2:2

~~~ University of Salford ~~~
I am passionate about conveying something from one language into another: as much for my own simple love of languages, as for the satisfaction of enabling somebody from a completely different country and culture to understand something they otherwise might not have. Whilst translating, I always try to express myself (in my native language) with precision and clarity. I also take pride in ensuring that I have a full and thorough knowledge of the subject area from which I am translating.

Professionally my experience outside of translation has been eclectic. Having come from a theatre arts background I have worked on camera on a multitude of film and TV sets, behind the scenes for a Brazilian dance entertainment company, and with a team of musicians and vocal experts. In addition, I have been employed extensively as a Bi-lingual PA in banks and law firms, and as Secretary in a large London Hospital. All these diverse areas have provided me with a broad knowledge and understanding of language usage, a sensitivity to register, and a familiarity with many linguistic fields and specialist terminologies. International experiences, a professional translation training, and an enthusiasm for learning vocal techniques motivated me to develop my multilingual skills, to offer high quality translation services to anybody who needs, and to establish myself as a professional translator offering voiceover services.

Skills and know-how I have acquired and developed are as diverse as my life experiences. Through my thorough and methodical research training from Westminster University I am meticulous and exacting, and therefore accurate, in my research skills. I love translating and strive to reach the level of excellence and professionalism I was trained to achieve. Having used Microsoft Office applications for almost Twenty years I have an expertise of MS Word up to the latest versions, and considerable experience of working on PowerPoint presentations and Excel charts and spreadsheets.

Since finishing my diploma, I have translated for agencies, individuals and commercial companies, covering areas such as Film Scripts, Fashion, beauty and cosmetics articles, Marketing texts, Immigration and Public Service Documents, University Transcripts, Educational & Training Certificates, Witness statements, CVs, Medical licenses to practise, TV/Radio outline for broadcasting series, reports on Human Rights and Electrical and Gas networks, No Claims Certificate for Car Insurance, Terms and Conditions, Online games information, Tourism articles, Property specifications and Real Estate documents. Pro bono work includes articles for a local music college, and website pages & promotional flyer for the Oxfam Italia website.

I am also able to offer voiceover services in various areas of spoken language
