About me
Translations from French & Spanish to English Specialist subjects

I am a qualified EFL teacher, former Faculty Head of Modern Languages and Technical & Specialised translation graduate with many years of experience in the voluntary, health and education sectors. I specialise in translations for international NGOs, the UN, and have a wide range of knowledge in fields such as medicine, politics, business, culture and food. I have spent two years living abroad, as a student in Paris and as an English teacher in Spain. I regularly visit France and Spain and have an excellent knowledge of both language and culture.


I gained an MA in Technical & Specialised Translation from the University of Westminster in 2002 after completing a BA Hons in French and Spanish at the University of Strathclyde in 2001. I am confident using a range of CAT tools and can adapt to the needs of my clients.

Over the past 17 years, I have worked as a freelance translator, in the voluntary sector, as a Modern Languages teacher and Faculty Head, as a marker and Visiting Assessor with the Scottish Qualifications Authority. After several years in Education, I am keen to refocus on my main area of interest – translation.
