I offer translation, proofreading and revision services into English (UK and US), from French, Italian and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional variants).

I am a native speaker of UK English, and completed my European Master's in Translation in September 2013, working in French, Italian and Chinese to English language pairs. I am a Chartered Linguist (Translator, Education) and Member of the UK Chartered Institute of Linguists (MCIL) in all of my language pairs, Italian, French and Chinese to English. I have professionally translated and proofed for agency clients including Pfizer, Sanofi-Aventis, Covance CAPS, DuPont, Pirelli, the French, Italian and Canadian governments, the National Gallery, London, the Musée du Louvre, Cirque du Soleil, Enel, ENI, various SMEs and many private individuals.

I specialise in the following fields from French and Italian:
- medical: regulatory - EMA QRD (SmPCs, labelling, PLs), clinical trials (physician and patient-facing documents including SAE reports/CRFs, substantial amendments, ICFs, protocols, forms and correspondence), medical records, medical certificates
- arts/travel and tourism: artwork loan agreements; marketing literature (websites, leaflets, brochures), guidebooks, advertisements

I also work in these other fields:
- legal: company, international organisation, bank, government and police procedures, documents, contracts, legislation, opinions and court rulings, including certification
- academic: arts, art history, education, social sciences essays; dissertation abstracts, transcripts, certificates, CVs, references, correspondence
- business presentations, reference manuals, correspondence, and marketing (architecture/design, telecoms, utility, cosmetics/beauty companies)
- finance: bank statements, application dossiers, anti-money laundering/anti-financing of terrorism, asset management, microfinance/international development, tenders and offers.

I use SDL Trados Studio 2019 and MultiTerm 2019 wherever possible, and am SDL certified at Level 3 (Advanced). I can also use MemoQ (Level One certified) and proprietary web-based CAT tools, and worked in DVX during my MA. I use my own and proprietary TMs and termbases whenever I can, and fully understand tag management, including in HTML and XML.

I regularly attend translation industry conferences and events, most recently the East Africa International Translation Conference in Arusha, Tanzania, in February 2020. I will be attending the CIOL Conference, London in March 2020.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
