I am a very experienced linguist with 17 years of experience in language education and translation. I have now turned all my energies to full-time freelance translation from German, French and Italian into English. I am highly motivated and seek to provide a professional level of service to all my clients with a degree of flexibility to suit their needs.
I had the motivation to successfully complete a law degree whilst I was still in teaching and have just finished my MA in Specialised and Technical Translation. I specialise in the legal fields (patents, contracts), but am very happy to translate in several other areas, a selection of which which you can find listed in my profile.
I am committed to providing a high level of professionalism in every aspect of my work.

My qualifications include a BA In German and French from Oxford University, a law degree (LLB), an MA in Specialised and Technical Translation and the IoLET Dip Trans in French. I have worked at the European Council in Strasbourg and as a freelancer in Paris and now in London. I have also lived and worked in Germany and Italy.
For more detailed information, please contact me for my CV and rates.
