About me
I am a professional freelance translator, full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (MCIL) and certified member of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (MITI), with 11+ years'​ experience in running my own business and translating texts from French, German and Spanish into English. I have worked for numerous reputable clients, and had many works published in books (see "Publications" section below), brochures, documentaries and websites. As part of my further professional development, I have attended translation seminars at the London Book Fair and London Language Show Live. I have additionally been invited to speak as a guest on a panel of expert translators at an AUSIT workshop in my hometown of Perth, and conduct a Q&A session on translation with 3rd-year German language students at the University of Western Australia.

A general interest in words and the wider world has also led me to freelance as a travel & lifestyle writer, regularly contributing to some of Perth's most popular news & lifestyle websites.

My clients & work to date have included:
German>English: BLG Logistics Group, BMW Group, City of Dresden, Crowne Plaza Hotels, Erste Bank Austria, German Red Cross, Hamburg Pride Week, Liechtenstein Supreme Court, Lufthansa, Maestrani Swiss Chocolates, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche Design, Saxon State Chancellery, Siemens, various German district courts, literary essays, contracts, nature documentary transcripts, travel & lifestyle books
