Professional practices Isabel Stainsby endorses's Professional Guidelines.

My first published non-fiction translation, The Kiev Leaflets as Folia Glagolitica Zempliniensia, by Martin Pukanec, is now out.

Emperor in Exile, the sequel to Frontiers of the Imperium, is now available on Amazon. More adventures in space as our hero tries to defeat an old enemy and save civilisation as he knows it.

I love words; I always have. I love languages and am always trying to learn at least one. I have a degree in languages from the University of Cambridge and an MA from the University of Bristol and I also hold DALF (Diplôme approfondi de la langue française/Diploma in advanced French language studies) at level C2. I have the Diploma in Translation (Institute of Linguists) in both French-English and German-English; I am an IoL member in all my language pairs.

I  worked in the languages industry for over six years and am now a full-time freelancer. However I have several years' experience as a PM in an agency so am fully aware of the pressures on the other side of the desk.

My translations are always accurate, as I research things obsessively, and formatted to match the layout of the original as closely as possible. You can expect the highest quality from me.
