I have been working since 2001 as a freelance project manager and editor in illustrated book publishing. In 2008, when a couple of existing publishing clients commissioned me to undertake translation work, I added French to English translation to my CV. I've since worked for many other publishing clients – in the UK, France, US and Switzerland – translating books in various mainstream subject areas, most notably travel and food/cooking /nutrition, but also film, art and crafts, among others.

My 30 years of experience in illustrated book publishing have proved valuable to my clients: I have a broader view of the whole process, can edit as well as translate text, commission services such as proofreading, and can work directly in InDesign to fit the translated text into the layouts. I have therefore often been asked to manage as well as translate text for a project.

Publishing clients for whom I have provided translations include Éditions Skiva, Hardie Grant, Quarto, Cahiers du Cinéma (Phaidon), Éditions de la Martinière, Éditions du Chêne, Flammarion, Michelin APA Publications, David & Charles, Quadrille Publishing, Ebury Publishing, The Womanity Foundation.

I've also worked on numerous shorter texts, for both translation agencies and private clients, in various general subject areas, notably tourismarts, interior design, fashion, food and drink, marketing and business
