About me
Freelance translator, editor, proofreader, writer, training and communications consultant.

Based in South Africa, but working with clients all around the world, I offer the following services: editing, proofreading, translation and localisation, interpreting, writing, transcription, language teaching and business communication.

I am a highly skilled communications practitioner adept at using integrated communications strategies and tools (across print, broadcast and web-based technology) to create and maintain productive and mutually beneficial stakeholder relationships.

I have been involved in corporate communication and tertiary education for the past 27 years where I have gained significant knowledge and skills in the communication and language fields. During this time I also gained valuable experience in broadcasting, lecturing, translation and interpreting through my (part-time) involvement with local government and universities.

Specialties include: publication production and management, writing, editing, proofreading, translation and localisation, interpreting, research, training & facilitation, media and stakeholder relationship management, web content creation and management, event management, branding and corporate identity management.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Communication as well as Advanced University Diplomas in Translation and Interpreting. I have been an accredited member of the South African Translators' Institute (SATI) since 1993. I am also a full member of the SA Freelancers’ Association (SAFREA) as well as a member of Professional Editors’ Guild (PEG)
