Qualifications...

...I have qualified with:


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

This is 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

The diversity of my working background has extended through theatre arts, film and TV sets, Brazilian dance entertainment, musical environments, and in employment as a Bi-lingual PA and Medical Secretary. 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.

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.

LingoNotes ...
...The Translation Service for Musicians & Music Professionals

In addition to my more general work, and in harmony with my more personal interests, I have now developed a division within my business providing for the needs of the music industry.
Having translated extensively for culturally diverse and artistically specialized promotional & journalistic literature, legal documents and artistic web content across all genres of music, from classical to hip-hop, from jazz to pop, and from folk to world music, I welcome any text, in any format, from musicians, singers, music professionals or associated specialists.

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