About me
After a career in chemical research and teaching spanning the UK, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, I moved to Spain in 2007 and started work as a freelance translator and literary agent. I have translated a wide variety of material from French, Spanish and Catalan into English, including:
  • scientific papers and technical reports

  • patents

  • promotional material for books (fiction and non-fiction)

  • letters

  • contracts (employment, representation, publishing, etc)

  • instruction manuals

  • educational material

  • technical specifications (chemistry, light engineering)

  • medical reports (autopsy, child psychology, language therapy, occupational therapy)

  • property-related texts (descriptions for letting and sale, convocations and minutes of co-proprietors' meetings, etc)

  • police reports

I recently returned to the UK, where I continue to offer a full range of translation services, including certified or sworn translations and legalisation as necessary.

I am an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and abide by the RSC Code of Conduct and Guidance on Professional Practice in my translation work, as well as the Chartered Institute of Linguists Code of Professional Conduct.
