About me

am a passionate and committed trilinguist with a longstanding interest in translation and am able to offer French and Spanish as my Source Languages. As a result, I have recently completed an MA in Translation Studies to Merit level. The course has cultivated a true
comprehension into the wealth of technological resources which exist within the
industry as well as the need to fully embrace these, including Computer Assisted
Translation Programmes and Machine Translation facilities.

In addition, notwithstanding such high-tech advancements
within the industry, I fully appreciate that the activity still needs to be
carried out by a competent linguist, well versed linguistically and culturally
in both Source and Target Languages. An appreciation for the wealth of paradigms
and historical concepts underpinning effective translation should also be
considered when undertaking a piece of work.

Similarly, the course included
instruction on how to produce annotations which provide greater insight into
one’s thought processes in delivering a meaningful rendition. Consequently, I
made full use of the opportunity to produce an extended ES/EN translation with
meticulous commentary for my dissertation.

Moreover, I have learnt fruitfully that the translator
requires an aptitude to work swiftly and accurately with conflicting demands as
well as the need to react unflappably to unforeseen circumstances and influxes
of work, given the competitiveness within the industry today.

If successfully appointed, I would be determined to undertake
any translation tasks with energy, accuracy and professionalism, maintaining the
norms of to the best of my ability. I remain available for work at
any time and am always looking for new clients, my rates are reasonable and I very much look forward to working alongside you.
