Translation & Proofreading

International Law, Human Rights, Sustainable Development, Social Sciences


Working across language barriers is more important than ever in our globalized world if you want to achieve your full potential. We all know that clear communication is indispensable for any productive interaction but clear communication with people who speak another language can be a real challenge.

That’s where I come in.

It is my mission to use my skills to make a positive contribution to the world.

I am here to help you communicate more effectively with your French and Spanish-speaking partners so your work will have the greatest possible impact where it’s needed most. I will help you to work across language and cultural barriers and to empower local communities by ensuring their voice is heard.

I translate reports, articles, funding requests and similar documents from French and Spanish into clear, concise English. Using my in-depth knowledge of sustainable development, human rights and social sciences-related issues, concepts and terminology, I will work with you to deliver high-impact, fit-for-purpose translations at a fair price.

My current clients describe me as reliable, professional and helpful. Let me help you break down language barriers, communicate effectively and achieve your goals.

In-depth Knowledge: With an LLM in International Law, Globalization and Development, I understand how the issues that matter to my clients interlock and impact upon one another. I regularly participate in webinars, MOOCs and seminars related to my specialist areas to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.

Time Management: I regularly work on large projects with tight deadlines and am able to organize my time effectively, keeping my clients' projects on track.
