Bio

       Education

I have a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages (French and Spanish), which included an academic year living and studying in Lyon, France. Other qualifications include translation certificates (French-English and Spanish-English), a Community Interpreting Certificate and a Certificate in TESOL.

      Experience

I began working as a freelance translator and proofreader/editor several years ago and have translated and proofread/edited a variety of document types. I also have community interpreting, English (EFL, ESOL and EAP) teaching and copywriting experience in the domains of fashion and travel.

In order to maintain and improve my knowledge of the languages that I translate from, I regularly watch films, listen to the radio, read literature and take part in conversational groups in these languages.When possible, I also visit the countries where the languages are spoken. I maintain and develop my knowledge of the subjects that I specialise and work in by reading relevant literature, carrying out internet and paper-based research and taking part in CPD events.
