The lowdown
Drawing on more than 10 years' experience in the translation & interpreting business working with French, German, Polish & English, I offer high quality based on a thorough knowledge of my specialisms combined with a professional approach focusing on reliability, speed & service with a smile.

Customers can take advantage of expertise gained in France, Germany, Poland and the UK:

Finance & Accounting
Specialist knowledge initially acquired as in-house translator in an international consulting firm dealing with financial statements, due diligence reports, financial controlling publications, financial reporting standards, investment fund documents, tax analyses and forms.

Output spanning a wide spectrum encompassing terminology-heavy texts relating to arbitration, insolvency & privatisation to projects requiring more flair such as company presentations, marketing & tourism materials.

Proficiency gained by hands-on experience in commercial (contracts, tender documentation, articles of association), EU (European Court of Justice case summaries, Phare Pre-Accession Applications), criminal (money laundering, terrorism), employment (guidelines regarding employee rights) and family law (comprehensive interpreting & translation services for child abduction & custody cases).

Legal knowledge continually developed via training including courses on public service interpreting focusing on English & Polish legal systems, German / Polish comparative civil law, English Common Law compared with European Civil Code systems.

Patents: knowhow gained in patent specifications & claims, correspondence for proceedings before the European Patent Office, both as a translator and translation manager with responsibility for this area.
Technical specifications, manuals & instructions covering power generation (gas turbines, boiler plants), air conditioning systems, welding & mining.

Structural and civil engineering texts including specifications, building permits, covering aspects such as safety, technical requirements, architecture.

Qualified Professional
Clients have the assurance of using a qualified translator and interpreter:
- Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists - German & Polish
- Associate of the Chartered Institute of Linguists - German & Polish
- Diploma in Translation - Polish to English with business + law - Chartered Institute of Linguists – professional translation qualification – with distinction
- Diploma in Public Service Interpreting – Polish / English Law - Chartered Institute of Linguists' certificate of interpreting & translation skills for work in courts and police – distinction in all sections
- French and German BA Joint Honours – emphasis on translation & interpreting - first class degree
Also, when it comes to Polish to English translation , I am one of the few English native speakers working in this language combination, which enables me to deliver more authentic, accurate and rapid work.

Customer Focus
Owing to my previous position as a translation manager I appreciate the importance of attention to detail, adherence to deadlines and flexibility and I apply this to my current freelance translation projects.
