I'm an experienced professional making a career change to translation. I am mature, prompt and reliable. I hold a Professional Certificate in translation from New York University and a degree in Broadcast Journalism. I am continuing my education via the Université de Québec à Trois-Rivières' BA in Translation, which includes both English to French and French to English language pairs.
I am an Associate Member of the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Saskatchewan (ATIS) and working towards certification. I am comfortable with European and Quebec French usage and can translate into North American or British English (I lived for some years in the UK and retain strong ties).
My strength is in the areas of politics, business and commerce, although I am comfortable in most areas, with the exception of specialized medicine and law. In my previous career, I had extensive experience in politics, including working in the Canadian parliament. I have also worked in private business. mining, advertising and the non-profit sector.
I use Windows, Apple computers and iPad, and most common office software applications. Payment via PayPal is preferred. Thank you for your interest.
