About me
About the translator

I have been translating as a freelance translator for translation agencies since the end of 2012, although have also volunteered as an interpreter for sports teams representing New Zealand in Germany and the South Pacific.

Despite having lived in multiple countries, I have decided to focus on these three language pairs for translation, as my grasp of these languages allows me to pick up cultural and linguistic nuances and bring these through in my translations.

Postgraduate Diploma in Translation Studies with Merit from the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Graduate Certificate in TESOL , Victoria University of Wellington.
BA with majors in Modern Language Studies, Italian Studies, Linguistics and Second Language Education through Victoria University of Wellington.
Study abroad I have been lucky enough to study at L'Universita' per Stranieri di Perugia for one month under a scholarship from the Italian Embassy in Wellington, New Zealand. I also gained entry to university in New Zealand following school results achieved in Austria during an exchange year with AFS, as well as a high school exchange to Noumea, New Caledonia.

My specialist fields
Sports I have represented New Zealand in handball as well as beach handball, and have represented my city/region in football, golf, cricket, and skiing. I also enjoy volleyball, squash and rock climbing.
Engineering 2005-2006 I worked as an engineering cadet for Opus International Consultants mainly working in roading, bridges and other fields of civil engineering.
Linguistics BA Major.
Second Language Education BA Major / GCert TESOL, have spent one year teaching English at a public school in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, China, and went to Russia to set up a German department at a language academy outside Moscow.
