CV/Resume English (DOC)
I graduated from Aston University, Birmingham in 1998 having read German for four years. Since graduating, I worked for several years as a classroom teacher, Head of Department and Advanced Skills Teacher in Birmingham. I have always thoroughly enjoyed studying and teaching German and have now been able to make the switch from Head of Languages to full-time translator.
Whilst teaching, I did translating for the international law firm DLA; mainly translating police interviews and police reports.
I have successfully passed part of the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation and for this trained extensively with City College, London.
I am currently reading for a Masters in Translation Studies in a European Context at Aston University and I am an Associate member of the ITI (Institute of Translators and Interpreters).

I have lived in both the north and south of Germany and am therefore quite au fait with both dialects as well as standard German. In order to keep abreast of language and culture i subscribe to a weekly German magazine, watch German television regularly and often visit German friends and family.

I am able to offer translations from German into English, be the text wriiten or aural. I am also very interested in subtitling. My areas of specialism are: education and pedagogy, social sciences, politics and current affairs, business, food and drink, marketing and localization.
I offer a competent and fast service and will honour all agreed deadlines without quibble.
