MITI, Qualified Member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting

Visit my website to see my Turnaround Times and Pricing Offering a variety of language services, including translation, copyediting, and proofreading. Direct and reliable contact, flawless work, and on-time delivery.

I've been working as a translator on a freelance basis for a number of years now, and I have to say that I really enjoy my job. I like receiving new, challenging assignments on a daily basis from German, Spanish and Czech into English, and I strive to deliver flawless translations that exceed expectations. I specialise in Law (especially Contracts) and Marketing but I'm happy to take a look at projects from across the range and provide you with a quick, customised quote. I'm an experienced copyeditor with over eight years of experience under my belt. Always opting for elegance, my services are best suited to academic copyediting (dissertations, theses, research papers), and sleek marketing campaigns for luxury products. Proofreading is a lot of fun for me, I'm a real stickler for grammar. I'm known to vehemently defend the Oxford comma, and I never, ever end sentences with a preposition. You can hold me to that.

I'm proud to have studied at University College London and the University of Cambridge. I've always been a linguist, I'm the kind of person who reads all of the different languages on the shampoo bottle. I grew up between England and Germany, so German translations are my most common task. I studied Latin American Studies at university and lived in Mexico City for a number of years, so Spanish translations (especially in the energy sector), are always welcome in my inbox. Czech translations are not as common, but they're always a pleasant surprise! Use the contact tab to get in touch and I'd be pleased to reply promptly.
