CV/Resume CV/Resume (DOC)
I currently live in Barcelona, Spain, where I work as a freelance translator.

I am a graduate in English law, having also been a language-specialist curator at the British library, London, and later at Durham University library. My cataloguing work at both libraries involved considerable amounts of professional translating (of French, Spanish, Arabic, Farsi) into English.

I have a good academic and working knowledge of English, American, Spanish, French, Italian, Swiss, EC and Islamic law. I also have considerable experience in translating contracts, licences and leases, as well as court documents and academic papers on legal topics.
