I am a freelance
translator working from French to my native English (UK). 
I have a
B.Ed.(Hons.) degree in French and an MA in Translation Studies.  I have also been a member of the Chartered Institute
of Linguists since 2010, was a teacher of French and English as a foreign language and, in
addition to my translation work, am an Assistant Examiner in both oral and
written tests in French with two UK-based examination boards.

I am a
general translator and have successfully completed translation projects in many
domains including law, medical, music, art, history and flower arranging, to
name but a few.  I am also happy to undertake proofreading tasks in any domain.

I have lived and worked in France for 17 years during my professional career, having begun my working life with the OECD in Paris.  France remains my favourite destination and I am very fortunate in having a home there too.
