SDL_Trados_Studio_Web_Icons_450x80bl_04I work while you sleep!Note: my main line of work at the moment is now localisation and linguistic validation of medical surveys for New Zealand English (rather than foreign language translation)

I am a native English speaker based in New Zealand. As most of my clients are based in the northern hemisphere, I am able to have work completed by the start of their working day.

My qualifications:

Bachelor of Arts in French and Italian from Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand [also studied Spanish and Politics]

FORDEP Administrateur-Géopolitique, HUMACOOP
[Geopolitical Coordinator for Humanitarian Work, Grenoble, France]

Small Business Management Certificate, Open Polytechnic, New Zealand

Diploma of Ayurvedic Lifestyle Management, Wellpark College, Auckland, New Zealand [natural health]

My professional experience:

I worked full-time at the Translation Service, Department of Internal Affairs in Wellington, New Zealand for 8 years, periodically*, as an in-house translator.

*I lived and worked in France and Rwanda in between times - as an English teacher in Roussillon, France, and as a translator for an international legal firm in Kigali, Rwanda.

I am easily contactable as I have an email notifier on my mobile phone which alerts me to any new emails, and I reply promptly (please note the time difference between your country and New Zealand in the link below). In general I respond to emails between NZ 8am-9pm (or later).

World Clock Meeting Planner

If my calendar shows that I am busy, don't hesitate to contact me for future work (or for very short jobs at that time and I can let you know whether I would be available or not).

*As of 2014, I now readily accept wire transfers in the following currencies: EUR, GBP, USD (I hold bank accounts in these currencies for hassle-free international deposits)*

I look forward to translating for you soon
Please note as of 2017, my current working days are NZ Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Also, my main line of work at the moment is now localisation (including mobile app strings to NZ and UK English) and linguistic validation of medical surveys for New Zealand English (rather than foreign language translation)
