Translations from French & Spanish to English My specialist subjects:
As an Economics graduate and former business owner, I specialise first and foremost in translations for business and finance. However, I have a wide range of knowledge in a number of fields including Physics, Chemistry, graphic design and Art. Furthermore, a foundation degree in Art & Design, specialising in Graphic Design, has allowed me to develop an excellent skill in Desktop publishing and typesetting.
I was awarded the degree of MA. in Applied Translation Studies from the University of Leeds. My MA extended translation in French was an art review relating to a Gothic French Ivory statuette, and my Spanish project was a business plan used for an application for international funding.
I also hold the degree of BA. (Hons.) Economics and Spanish, awarded by the University of Leeds, in which I was able to gain a wealth of knowledge relating to Business, Finance and Economics.
My Erasmus year was spent studying Economics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Furthermore I have worked directly with large companies such as Kee Action Sports, as well as small businesses such as Ant Applications.
During my Masters I acquired skills in a wide range of CAT tools, including MemoQ, Wordfast, Passolo, DejaVu X2, OmegaT and SDL Trados, for which i have attained an official professional qualification. I also have experience of technical translation, localisation, and subtitling.
