With over seventeen years’ experience, languages are not only my job, but my own personal passion. My motivation is to inspire a love of languages in others and see them achieve their aims. I am a patient, encouraging, enthusiastic, friendly and dedicated teacher. Setting up Languages For Living and being able to combine teaching with working as a translator is a dream that I am thrilled to have been able to realise.
I offer translation services (from French to English and German to English) and proofreading services (French, German and English). Translation clients include Hodder (for Alan Titchmarsh), British people who own holiday homes abroad, property developers, lawyers, a diamond dealer, acupuncturists and a sculptor. I take great pride in my accurate, high quality translations, both technical and non-technical. I offer an efficient and personal service and competitive rates.
Qualifications: I gained a high 2:1 BA Honours degree in German with French from Hull University and I was also awarded the Prize for the best student of German that year, 1997. During my degree I spent a year living in Germany and studying at Münster University. I then completed an MA in German Studies at Swansea University, followed by a teaching qualification at Pembrokeshire College.
