After over 11 years as an in-house Translator and Production Manager at Praetorius Limited (Nottingham, UK) and Atlantique Traduction (Nantes, France), I have been a freelance translator since 1999.

Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting since 1990.
Member of the Société Française des Traducteurs.

I have acquired considerable experience and have an interest in special-purpose and converted vehicles such as fire tenders, ambulances, motorhomes, PSVs, military vehicles, agricultural vehicles, etc.

In 2009/10, I worked for 15 months in the in-house translation department of an engineering company, a subsidiary of a leading French company in the nuclear industry.
