Professional practices Ben Harrison endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I have a lifelong interest in languages and an excellent command of written English, which was forged during my studies and by my time spent teaching English as a second language. My first degree was in French, German and Spanish at the University of Wales, followed by a Master's in Technical and Specialised Translation (German and Spanish) at the University of Westminster, and I have also attended summer schools in Germany and Guatemala.

I have a long-standing personal interest in the financial markets and have taken classes in Economics both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and before starting as a translator I worked at a financial magazine reporting on credit derivatives, so my main specialisation is in financial translations. In 2016 I also spent a period of time working in-house at Audi translating the annual financial report. 

Another of my areas of interest is sustainable construction and passive house technology. I am a supporter of the Passivhaus Trust in the UK and have completed a course in the fundamentals of passive house technology from the Passive House Institute.

I have also translated a great deal of corporate literature and marketing texts, particularly in the tourism sector, which I enjoy as this allows me a freer rein to get the creative juices flowing. Some of my previous work in the tourism sector includes translating brochures and press releases for a major international airline.
