Growing up on the beautiful Isle of Wight off the English south coast, I was environmentally conscious from a young age – organising my own recycling collections and raising concerns over bathing water quality in a newspaper article. So it should be no surprise that, many years later, renewable energy has become one of my specialist areas for translation.
