About me
A professional translator with international experience in journalism, literature and tourism.

I sat the CIOL Diptrans exam in January 2016 and passed the literary section with merit. I am re-sitting the last section in January 2017.
Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism, Falmouth College of Arts, UK
Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy, First Class, University of Nottingham, UK

Recent work:
FR>EN: Science, philosophy and literature online magazine, 'Revue Temps': regular translations and editing
FR>EN: Brochures & leaflets for the Centre Pompidou museum; e-book on fitness and well-being; professional catalogue for essential oils
ES>EN: Website for the Real Alcázar de Sevilla; leaflets for Fuert-aventura guided tours

Relevant Experience:
I have been a full time translator for the last three years. I have always translated now and again during my career as a journalist and also while running a holiday company in the Canaries.
My varied international journalism experience has allowed me to hone my writing skills to the level required of a professional translator specialising in literature.
