My bilingual upbringing has given me a keen awareness of culturally specific usage and meaning. This skill makes me suitable for all translations relating to culture, music and literature in particular. As a trained network administrator, my translations in the realm of IT also benefit from practical and up to date knowledge. Business documents and technical texts are translated with accuracy and fluency of style. While I am known for prompt delivery, I take care to research my terminology thoroughly and work with brilliant proof readers for the finishing touch.

B.A Honours in English and European Literature (University of Warwick)

Freelance translator for over 10 years (Siemens, Ford, Wabco, Mercedes Benz, Mercedes Benz Trucks, Atlas, Volkswagen, Xcom, Festival Magazine, Sony Classical, doctoral theses, culinary texts, poetry)
