Bio
I am a fully qualified translator, with a Master's degree in Applied Translation Studies from the University of Leeds.

I am a full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and am also a member of the Proz.com Certified Pro network.

I have more than 5 years of experience. I began with an in-house position, which involved translating large volumes of official documentation, court papers, technical reports and marketing brochures.

I have now worked for more than 2 years as a freelance translator. I have a range of clients, including manufacturers of supply chain equipment, financial institutions, a law firm and an architect's office. I also write for a tour guide publisher.

Whilst I have developed a number of technical specialisms, I am also very happy to consider projects of a more general nature, such as company reports, presentations, certificates and letters.

In addition to my experience as a translator, I have also spent 5 years working as a contract manager in the steel and power generation industries. My work was focused on supply chain, in particular international shipping, road and rail freight and inventory management.
