About me
I specialise in:

Simultaneous or consecutive interpreting at conferences, meetings and events around the world.

Translation of:

Documents relating to development: international development or sustainable development, environmental impact assessments, renewable energy, capacity building, rural development, monitoring and evaluation, international institutions (UN, EU, WB), NGOs.

Documents that have to sound good in English: marketing and communications texts, press releases, magazine and newspaper articles, current affairs, tourism

Documents from the world of business: management, training, HR, tender procedures (expressions of interest, bid writing and management), company annual reports, social audits, etc.

I have been a full-time freelance interpreter and translator for the last 12 years. I also have 15 years professional experience in multinational corporations, working in French and English in International Development, Tourism, HR and Management.

I work with Wordfast on all translation projects. A native English speaker, I live in Madrid. I hold an MA in Interpreting and Translation from the University of Bath, an MSc in Politics (International Development) from Bristol University and a degree in English and French from the University of Paris. I am an AIIC pre-candidate, have been a member of the Institute of Linguists in UK and have Certified Pro status on Proz.
