After working in secondary and adult education (teaching modern foreign languages and humanities plus management roles), I changed career in 2007 and undertook training to become a freelance translator, working from German into English.

I completed (with Merit) a Master's degree in Applied Translation Studies at the University of Leeds in 2007-2008 and then began operating in January 2009. I have increased my accreditation in the field by subsequently becoming a Fully Qualified Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (M.I.T.I.), a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (MCIL) and a Chartered Linguist (Translation) (CT (Trans.)). I also keep up to date with CPD via webinars, reading etc.

I undertake work mainly in the medical, pharmaceutical, educational, social sciences and general financial/legal fields.Via agencies, I have undertaken a substantial amount of translation work for the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD) and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HRMC). In connection with such work, I have undergone full "vetting" (security checks) and have received authorisation to undertake such work.

I adhere fully to the Codes of Conduct for Freelance Translators of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
