Bio
My working language pair is French to English.

I have recently returned to the UK following two years living in Normandy, where I taught English to French adults of various levels, whilst also translating freelance, part-time. I am now setting up as a full-time freelancer.

Some of my biggest completed projects to date have included 30,000 words on a document concerning the rehabilitation of a Hydro-Electric Power Plant, 70,000+ words in the field of Tourism, with particular emphasis on oenotourism, vineyards, cuisine and history, 100,000 words for a French astrology company, and a 27,000-word project in the domain of IT and cloudcomputing.

I completed an MA in Translation with Language Technology in 2010 at Swansea University, UK, achieving the mark of Distinction. The course focused on a wide range of technical to semi-journalistic translations, including texts from IT, tourism and scientific domains.

As part of the MA, I completed two in-depth translation projects concerning highly technical texts: part of a Master's thesis on water purification and part of a Doctoral thesis on OLED technology. Each text was over 10,000 words in length, and involved the construction of an elaborate termbase, and full use of CAT tools (SDL Trados & MultiTerm for one, and Swordfish, Stingray & Anchovy for the other).

I was presented a remunerated award for Best Use of Language Technology throughout the MA by Wolfestone Translations (Swansea, UK).

For another part of the MA I worked as a Project Manager and Translator on a multilingual translation project to localise the Greenpeace website, using Trados 2009. This project involved texts in environmental and forestry domains.

I also assumed the role of IT Manager/Translator within a work experience module, where as a group we ran a simulated translation company, where we were supplied with real-life translations from several translation companies. My translations included a large number of texts in the field of Oenology, as well as some legal documents.

Before pursuing my MA, I graduated from Cardiff University in 2008 with a 2.1 Joint Honours degree in French and Cultural Criticism.

I have SDL Certification for Trados 2009, Level 3 (Advanced) for Translators, as well as Project Manager certification for both Trados 2011 and MultiTerm.

In 2008, I was short-listed as a finalist in a literary translation competition run by the French Embassy in London.

I won a translation competition during my final undergraduate year and had my piece published on a European crime fiction website, Europolar, and subsequently contributed a further three pieces to the site.
