My name is Roxane Hugues, I am a professional Interpreter and Translator. I am a native French speaker, bilingual in French and English. I started my linguistic journey by studying for a BA Joint Honours English (Linguistics and Literature) & Hispanic Studies (Spanish&Portuguese) at the University of Nottingham.
While studying languages, I also studied the equivalent of an MA Diplomacy to specialise in International Relations and Foreign Affairs, subjects which I find fascinating.
After graduating, I continued on the same path with an MA in Conference Interpreting and Translation Studies (French<>English) at the University of Leeds. The programme is recognised by the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC).
I have been working as a freelance Interpreter and Translator since, on varied subjects ranging from Town Centre Management and business meetings to African socialism, including Photography and Oenology.
My main areas of specialisation are Oenology, Foreign Affairs and the tourist industry.
I am also a Graduate Affiliate member of the Institute of Interpreters and Translators (ITI, UK).
