I'm passionate about languages. I'm also passionate about delivering the best possible results at the right time. Read on to find out about the winning combination of expertise, experience and benefits I offer.
Freelance translator and/or interpreter, Verified site user
I'm a native British English speaker who has been providing high-quality translations on time since 2005 (please note that I was also a full ProZ member from April 2005 until October 2008).
Years of study and practice combined with my longstanding passion and natural talent for languages enable me to offer an above-average level of linguistic expertise.
Though I have tended to specialise in translating in the field of business, my multi-faceted training and experience enable me to translate accurately in other fields such as the social sciences, education and Latin American affairs.
I take great pride in my work and guarantee puntual delivery of a high-quality end product. I am committed to offering a professional and flexible service at a competitive rate. When you entrust me with a project, you can feel confident that your requirements will be met and that you will be satisfied time after time.
Finally, you may be interested to know that I offer other services in addition to translation.
