As a child I lived in Germany for five years, and grew up bilingual in German. Also completed German language and literature studies at Heidelberg University (1987).
My father has lived in the Netherlands since 1978 and I have lived and worked there for extended periods, and studied Dutch translation at Linguarama in the Hague.
Have lived in Greece 1985-1990 and 2003-present. In 2005 I did an MA at London University in Modern Greek language and literature, with a special translation component. I have translated many different Modern Greek texts, including commercial, legal, and literature/poetry.
I have excellent English language skills. The quality of my English is frequently remarked upon by clients, as well as the accuracy of my translation.
I have an MA from Cambridge University in English Literature (1985).
For ten years I was an assistant editor of the Oxford English Dictionary (2006-2016)
I have also worked for many years as an editor of English language texts for publication.
Besides the languages I officially translate I am also very competent in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
