Hello and welcome to my Pro-Z page.
If you'd like to know more about the services I provide, feel free to visit my website:

I am a freelance translator and interpreter based between beautiful Barcelona and my native Belfast.

At the moment, in my professional practice, I focus mainly translation for theatre and performance, building on what I've learnt and the experience I have gained through my doctoral studies in translating Catalan theatre.  

I also specialise in government and marketing communications within a European context, translating a variety of texts for parliaments, public bodies, and QUANGOs within the Catalan Countries and on the island of Ireland. As a digital native, with a flair for social media, branding, marketing and e-commerce, I tackle marketing comms for brands that want to reach out to new audiences and markets. In particular, I work with brands that focus on beauty and make-up, furniture and interior design, fashion and jewellery, as well as purveyors of luxury goods.  

From seed to sale, I'm fascinated by fabrics, textiles and just about every aspect of fashion. These are everyday commodities that we take for granted, but they tell a story about humanity. Whether it's fair trade, organic cotton from India or haute couture designs from an atelier, I've got it covered. Having worked in several translation agencies that specialised in medical translations, I've been able to take that experience and have applied it to translating texts on medical textiles.

I have a strong background in interpreting and translating within political contexts (in Northern Irish, Irish and pan-European settings) as well significant work experience in the NGO sector, focusing mainly on indigenous and tribal rights.
