Professional practices Catherine McGuinness endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I hold a Masters in Translation as well as a BA in Modern Languages (French and German), both from the University of Bristol and have experience in both proofreading and translation.

Areas of interest and expertise include:
Legal: contracts, disputes, patents.
Pharmaceutical: patient information leaflets, drug interactions glossary.
Retail: Amazon product listings (including jewellery, electronics, DIY).
Arts: theatre, theatre tech (sound, lighting), dance.
General: letters, death certificates.

Software and formats I am familiar with include Wordfast Anywhere, Wordbee, Virtaal, Microsoft Word, Excel, TMXL and PDF.

Short sample translations can be provided to potential clients.

I am available to work weekends and out-of-hours; since I am based in California (Pacific Time GMT-7) projects received at the end of the European business day can be submitted by 9 am the next European business day.

I am able to accept payment in US Dollars, British Pounds or Euros.
