About me
I have a varied career past, which has taken me from working in tourism, to IT network security, and latterly ERP (SAP Finance / HR Business Analysis). I also studied Law and have vast experience of dealing with contracts of engagement through my work as a consultant. I am now training to become a commercial pilot - which means I know aeroplanes and anything aviation inside and out for fixed wing aircraft!

I only translate into English, and I only stick to fields in which I have hands on professional experience, which gives me the edge over translators who have only ever been translators.

I am a full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
