I have been accredited as a professional translator from French into English by Australia's National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) since 2010.

I undertake projects both large and small and take pride in delivering quality work within a reasonable time-frame. Recent translation work has included a brochure for a new electronic ticketing system for transport in the greater Sydney area and a section of an annual accounts document for a leading insurance company. I have also translated a range of documents for visa applicants in Australia (baccalaureate results, university diplomas and course descriptions, certificates of employment and criminal record checks). I also translate on a pro-bono basis for Solidarités International.

English (UK) is my native language and my French is fluent, both written and spoken. I have a BA in French and Italian from the University of Durham and an MSc in Human Resource Management from the London School of Economics & Political Science.

I have spent upwards of 8 years living and working in France including:
- 2.5 years in the Tourism and Leisure industry (chalets and hotels) in the French Alps
- 4.5 years in personnel administration and recruitment for a top management consulting firm in Paris
My professional experience also encompasses Real Estate, Financial Services, and Education.

My translation style is adaptable: I take care to stay close to the original text in legal documents, whereas I feel that there is scope for a touch of creativity in tourism and travel writing. Whatever the project, I place great importance on accuracy and efficiency.

I look forward to hearing from you!
