About me
Whilst working within the area of IT project management in the Northern Ireland Civil Service, I completed a Masters in Translation Studies at Queens University Belfast. This allowed me to simultaneously improve my knowledge and practical experience within the world of project management, IT and business in general, whilst studying the theory of translation at university. My Masters degree also provided me with the essential skills and attributes required to become a freelance translator. Through my course I was provided with the opportunity to forge links within the industry and hone my skills under expert supervision.

Experience I am a Qualified Member (MITI - Translator) of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting. I have provided examples of my work from paying clients within my profile. My last major project consisted of translating a 70,000 word user manual for a computerised debt collection system. I was able to use my previous working experience within the financial sector to assist me in this task. In my career within government I have experience in drafting ministerial submissions, staff bulletins and press releases, which has provided me with the opportunity to develop audience-specific writing skills.

I enjoy sports and keeping fit and have completed the Belfast marathon in a time under 3 hours 30 minutes. I am a keen footballer and regularly play 5-a-side games to keep my competitive juices flowing. I enjoy travelling, particularly in Latin America where I have travelled extensively in the last few years and take pride in staying off the beaten track in order to enhance my language skills. I am a keen hiker and enjoy the outdoors, combining camping with my love for travel. I always take the opportunity to get into the ocean and catch some waves whenever I am on the west coast of Ireland or other attractive surfing destinations.
