Professional practices Simon Oliver endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
My work is centred on real estate, legal translations and tourist website design. I do a lot of interpreting for individual and corporate clients visiting France and doing business in the South. Economics and law degrees from Trinity College, Dublin, mean that I can handle most business related work.

30 years experience interpreting and translating in the south of France.
Ten years teaching legal English and economics in various French universities (Paris II, Paris XII, Toulouse II).
Ten years in West Berlin (damals..) as Hinterhoftreppenputzer and English teacher (Akademie für Fremdsprachen).
