I am a
native English speaker with fluent French. During my MA in French at Oxford
University I developed excellent language skills, attaining top marks in
translation. I spent a year studying in Paris as part of my degree and am
highly familiar with the French language, especially in the fields of
literature and art (which I studied), and of international politics and
development (the sector I work in).

My written English is of a high standard, and having proof-read an economic
history book written by a non-native speaker, I am experienced at dealing
with complex technical terms and expressing them clearly and concisely. As
part of my current work I regularly translate from French into English, as
well as writing or proof-reading English text. I am used to translating the
CVs (resumes) and cover letters of others or working on them to tune up the
language, and this is a further area in which I specialise

I also speak Italian to intermediate level and have a basic understanding
of Spanish (as well as of Nepali!)

I can be flexible to ensure quick turnaround of work when required. If you
message me I'll get back to you within 24 hours.
