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

My main specialisms are tourism and marketing. I get a real sense of satisfaction from the creativity that is required to turn a text into something that will really speak to an English-speaking readership; sniffing out original turns of phrase and puzzling out how to deal with linguistic challenges to make the translated text truly dynamic and enjoyable to read, whilst maintaining the content and feel of the original. 

I am able to provide translations for a range of other business needs. With my strong research skills and wide-ranging knowledge, I take pride in translations that are accurate and fit for purpose.

Unlike many other translators, I have direct experience in working in the industries for which I translate. I have worked as a policy adviser for the UK government, as a teacher and in various roles in the travel and tourism industries. This mean that I understand my clients' needs and concerns. I know what I am talking about and that shines through in my translations. 

Examples of previous projects include:


Magazine articles for cruise company

Websites for travel agencies, hotels, restaurants etc.

Leaflets for Tourist Offices and tourist attractions

External communications (website, social media etc.) for a major transport provider

Texts relating to history, sailing, golf, outdoor activities, art, design, architecture, etc.


Social media, websites, brochures etc. for leading manufacturers and brands in the haute couture, carpet and textile industries.

Texts for companies in a variety of fields (food and drink, music, botanicals)

Government and the non-profit sector:

Human Resources and management (reports, internal handbooks, job descriptions, etc.)

Project reports and documentation 

Education and child development (training materials)

Business management and administration

Internal communications and training materials

Finance (procedures, correspondence)
