Professional practices Robert Brown endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I am a native English speaker from the United Kingdom, qualified to the
European C1 level in both French (DALF) and Spanish (DELE). Since September
2018 I have been translating from French and Spanish into English, using
technical knowledge gained from a long international career in land resources
and agriculture. I now translate in the knowledge domains I know - environment,
agriculture, international development, earth observation and geographic
information - in addition to general translation. I also translate in the field
of outdoor leisure, based on personal experience of running, mountaineering,
skiing and cycling. See some of the jobs I have been working on in my profile
on Proz: .

Since 1982 I have been working in the field of agriculture and
environment, especially in applications of satellite Earth Observation for
environmental monitoring and mapping – specialising in agriculture and land
use. Much of this has involved international development experience working in
English, French and Spanish – including Mali, Niger, Argentina and Peru. Whilst
working as a Technical Development Specialist at the African Union (2013-17) I
was responsible for translations of core documents and environmental bulletins
from English into French and Portuguese. For my technical background see: .

- freelance translator with Translated S.r.l.: website localisation, software manuals, general documents.

- tasks for Translators without Borders: documents for NGOs working in international cooperation (e.g. Action Contre le Faim), I am a Kato verified translator for both my language pairs. * See my TWB profile here:

- scientific documents with a Spanish translation agency

- technical translation of project materials from English into Spanish for an earth observation project with a technical consultancy.

*Note that the TWB badge above only refers to the TWB Workspace, most of my translations were done on their Kato system! See my TWB profile link above.
