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.
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 and ESOL) teaching and copywriting experience. 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.
