What James Calder is working on

Sport is what I do, from biathlon to the decathlon and from track and field to field hockey.

My clients are governing bodies, high-profile clubs, news websites, equipment and car manufacturers, and organising committees, and I have worked on World Cups and European Championships in a number of sports and the Olympic Summer and Winter Games.

As well as an eye for detail, I also have a dogged determination to find the right word or term. I don't just write the first thing that comes into my head.

My writing is fluent, polished and always caters for a native audience, and my approach to my work is meticulous and professional.

Complete confidentiality is also something I can guarantee, whether the text in question is a sensitive legal document or a press release on the winner of major sporting award that has yet to be announced.

Aside from translation, I provide proofreading, transcription and editing services, and if you need an article written on a sport of your choice, then I can do that too.

I also deliver high-quality translations in the following fields: history, the arts, the fashion industry, politics and aerospace.
