I am a French and Spanish to English translator based in the UK who holds a Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists and a BA (Hons.) in Modern Language Studies from the University of Nottingham.

Having 15 years of professional experience outside the translation industry that relates directly to my areas of specialisation, I bring a professional approach, in-depth subject knowledge and an awareness of the client’s needs to all my translations.

My specialisations are as follows:

Government, politics and the non-profit sector

I worked as a Policy Officer in the UK civil service for five years, working in the Departments for Education, International Development and Work and Pensions. My responsibilities included briefing Ministers, developing policy and representing the UK at the EU Education Committee.

Business management and administration

My civil service career involved management, for example managing performance in a Jobcentre Plus District and planning the restructuring of the Joint International Unit.

Education and Child Development

I am a qualified teacher (PGCE) with experience working in schools in the UK and Japan. I am also the mother of two children.

Tourism and Travel

A former international tour manager for bands and orchestras, I also have experience working in the tourism industry.

Marketing and Public Relations

I was responsible for launching a publicity campaign, encouraging UK citizens to get involved in EU programmes such as ERASMUS.

I am proud to be a volunteer translator for Translators Without Borders.
