Bio

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 12+ 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. My commitment to upholding the high standards of the translation services industry is additionally underlined by the fact that I have achieved ISO 17100:2015 Qualified Status. 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:
