Bio
With experience in providing language services for business, legal, safety, immigration, child protection, medical and public information use, I have always fine tuned the service I provide to the individual needs of the client without compromising the quality and simplicity of the task at hand.

As a translator and interpreter, I focus on translating both the meaning of the words and the concept of the message. This is something that no computer software can ever hope to achieve, as human languages are far more richer, dynamic and personal than any machine could be programmed to process.

Misunderstandings in communication cost more than just money, they waste time and can even prove fatal. As individuals, we owe it to ourselves and others to safeguard against this error.

If you have a communication need that requires bridging the gap between cultures as well as languages without losing the human touch, please feel free to share that need with me.
I have professional experience in providing face to face interpreting/voice-over and translation services for a number of UK and international organisations. Some of these are as follows:
HM Local Government Social Services, Department of Benefits
US Medicare, Schools
HM Government: Revenue & Customs, Home Office, Department of Work & Pensions
Refugee Legal Centre (UK)
International and UK telephone interpreting for medical, commercial and emergency services.
Commercial voiceover for safety videos
IVR voice over (studio or home recording)
For your information I have experience in both studio, telephone and web voiceover work for safety videos, telephone help lines and other such areas.
Rates are subject to seeing the content and timescales for the material in question. Please note that I do not sign exclusivity or indemnity agreements but naturally I am happy to sign confidentiality agreements.
