Bio
Summary 
Welcome to my profile page!  I am a medical transcriber and translator, a native speaker of UK English with fluent Spanish and French.  I hold a BA (Hons) in Spanish and French and affiliate membership of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI).

Subject and Language Experience
Having worked for over fourteen years in the public health sector, I have a thorough understanding of medical terminology and the appropriate phrasing for medical texts.

I also have a special interest in human rights, having worked for Amnesty International (AI) for nearly nine years, including three years as an editor and proofreader and two years in the Americas Research Program, where I worked almost exclusively in Spanish.

Although new to professional translation, in 2020 I took part in a mentorship program run by ITI, working with an experienced translator to complete six Spanish to English translation assignments on a variety of subjects, including healthcare and Fair Trade.

While working at Amnesty, I gained some experience of ad hoc translation and interpreting in a work context. 

In 2018, I joined Translators Without Borders as a volunteer translator.

I aim to produce translations which are not only accurate and concise but which read like original English, using a strong combination of linguistic and writing skills alongside solid work experience in my specialist fields.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch via email.  My CV and sample translations are attached to my profile here and you can also find me on LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/marymccomb.
