About me
I am a legal translator offering professional translation, proof reading, editing and abstracting services from French and Italian into English.

I have over six years experience specializing in legal translation. I work with academic legal texts, court judgements, legislation and private legal documents, including contractual, commercial and corporate documentation as well as texts related to conveyancing/real estate transactions. My expertise is also relevant to the related field of business and commercial, for instance in relation to the translation of terms and conditions.

Being a qualified Scottish Solicitor and Notary Public with a First Class Honours Degree in Law, a Diploma in Legal Practice and in excess of three years post qualifying experience, my knowledge of the complexities of legal drafting and terminology means that I am ideally qualified to work in the field of legal translation. As a solicitor, I worked mainly in the field of Private Client and Commercial and Residential Conveyancing/Real Estate, including Commercial Leasing. I also have experience of Corporate, Licensing and Civil and Criminal Court work.

I am also qualified as a translator having gained my MA in Translation Studies from the University of Hull with Distinction.

I currently use SDL Trados Studio 2014 Translation Software. I am currently certified in respect of SDL Multiterm 2014 and to an advanced level by SDL in respect of SDL Trados Studio for Translators 2011. Please click on the following link to view my certification.
