I have been translating in-house and as a freelancer since 2012 and have been a full member of the NZSTI since returning to New Zealand in 2017.

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.

My specialist fields

I specialize in technical translations: railway sector, transport and transport management, civil engineering and software; as well as sports: scuba diving and handball.
