►  Qualified, well-researched, native English translations. Quality is my passion and priority.

►  My specialty: translations that sound like originals rather than translations.

►  Clear, accurate and natural-sounding English translations of Polish, Spanish and French texts.

►  BA in Modern European Languages and a BComm in Business Management from the University of Pretoria.

►  Competitive rates, flexible availability and fast turnaround times.

►  Marketing texts translated with flair and localized knowledge. (Brochures, product descriptions, booklets and other advertising material.)

►  Legal translations with accurate, researched terminology and phrasing. (Contracts, legal proceedings and regulations.)

►  Financial translations with correct, industry-appropriate wording. (Financial statements, reports, fund prospectuses and tax certificates.)

►  Worked in the finance and tax industries in a variety of roles for five years, which have given me a strong foundation in financial terminology.

►  Services offered: translation, proofreading and transcreation from Polish/Spanish/French into English.

► Contact me so that we can discuss your needs for your project!
