Friendly and professional, I have a lifetime’s experience which ranges from practical and managerial experience in the arts, service and hospitality industries to academia and the worlds of online learning, staff development and leadership coaching in higher education.

My broad work experience and skill in writing high-quality materials in the English language help me produce thoughtful and appropriate French to English translations explicitly tailored to my clients’ requirements.

“Thank you for the outstanding quality of your work.”

P.D., Agency co-founder.

Translation and transcription of educational materials, product and training manuals, web pages, product descriptions, marketing, advertising and PR materials, brochures, catalogues and presentations and I also offer post-editing of machine translation (MTPE).

I have an honours degree in Computer Science (Aberystwyth University, 1997) and am qualified at Masters’ level in Executive Coaching (University of the West of England, 2009). I am an Associate (AITI) of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting*
