I have been working as a translator now for over six years, working from French into English and Russian into English. Since qualifying in May 2008, I have translated business and technical texts - from company financial reports to technical specifications for the automotive market - for a number of agency clients all over the world.
Although I am relatively inexperienced in the translation business, I do have many years of experience in working for myself in the following sectors:
Arts company - for the past ten years, I have been a director of a Scottish dance company
The third sector (I'm a director of a social enterprise support organisation)
Tourism - I run a self-catering apartment business in Edinburgh
IT Training consultancy (MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Windows, Dragon NaturallySpeaking)
International Conference organisation
Throughout my professional career, I have been renowned for my excellent presentation skills, especially in document production. I have developed several websites which you can view here, to give you an indication of my website development and copywriting skills:
I am very experienced in producing high-quality work to stringent deadlines - in my social enterprise work, I have been responsible for writing many successful funding and sponsorship proposals. So I am no stranger to the written word and its presentation!
