Bio

In
addition to a first degree in German, I hold CIOL Diplomas in Translation from
Italian, French and Dutch into English. I am also a certified member of both
the ITI and the CIOL.

Before
becoming a translator, I worked in Italy for 15 years, in the international
marketing and advertising departments of Olivetti, a major Italian office
equipment manufacturer – where I regularly used German and French in my dealings
with Olivetti’s subsidiaries, and the trade shows where we exhibited. My
activities there gave me insight into the communication needs of manufacturers,
and this is the area in which I best like to work, and in particular with
manufacturers of products that improve people's quality of life, either because
they are aesthetically appealing or because they help the environment in some
way.

I am passionately convinced that
outstanding products deserve communication that is equally outstanding and that
transmits an impression of quality (through the look and tone but also through
accurate grammar and punctuation) to the reader. This becomes increasingly
important as it
becomes more and more likely that the first place
potential customers will "see" products is online.

Excellent communication
is a driving force throughout my life, which is why I also teach on an MA
translation course at the University of Westminster and spend my free time both
onstage and backstage at a local theatre group – South London Theatre in West
Norwood.
