CURRENT TRANSLATION PROJECTS

Language combinations: French into English; German into English; Afrikaans into English.
Areas of specialization: Arts & Humanities; Law; Business and Financial; Marketing

I edit English text (both US and UK) and am committed to the rules and inconsistencies of English grammar. I have a passion for writing great copy and original content.

Recent translation projects have been mostly from German into English for surety letters issued by a large European bank. I have also translated auditors' reports (German into English) and medical reports and an employment contract (French into English). While I was employed full-time I translated mostly from Afrikaans into English in a military environment and for a performing arts company, to name a few.

PREVIOUS FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT

I transcribed speeches in the National Assembly and National Council of Provinces in South Africa's Parliament from 1997 to 1998. I managed the sourcing, editing and approval of articles for publication in a weekly newsletter distributed to approximately 5,000 industry professionals for a large health and life insurer from 2004 to 2008. And while at a non-profit organization from 2008 to 2016, I approved the writing and quality control process for all written marketing communication. This included website copy, prospective membership brochures, privacy protection manuals and legal procedure guides.

In 2015 I passed a Board Paper in Corporate Secretaryship offered by Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa - a professional body committed to good corporate governance.
