About me
I am a native speaker of British English with an excellent knowledge of French and Russian. I have been working as a full-time freelance translator since September 2005 and specialise in law (contracts, leases, articles of association, judgments, legislation, reports on the implementation of international legal instruments at country level).

I graduated from Heriot-Watt University with a first-class honours degree in Interpreting and Translating (French and Russian), winning the Watt Club Medal (awarded to the highest ranking student in each graduating class).

I completed City University's postgraduate diploma in legal translation (French to English) in July 2010, a two-year part-time course with modules on contract, litigation, property, EU law and corporate and commercial law. I passed with merit.

I passed the United Nations three-stage exam for translators in 2015.

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and a Career Affiliate of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting. I am also a member of the ITI's Scottish, Russian, and Legal, Insurance & Financial networks.
