Professional practices Ian Keith Jones Williams endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I am a highly experienced British-born translator, working in the language combinations German to English and Spanish to English. I mainly translate technical texts, manuals and marketing material for consumer products, but also have considerable experience with general business, construction, sustainability, tourism, cooking and service contracts. I have particular expertise in security technologies, pedelecs/bicycles, safety and renewable energies.

Studied BSc (Hons) Modern Languages (German and French) at the University of Aston, in Birmingham, UK, including a study year at the Freie Universität Berlin.

Lived in Spain almost continuously since 1988 - sixteen years in Madrid and ten years in Barcelona. Have also spent some time in Berlin during this period, where I have lived a total of two and half years.

Carried out three years' university research into media (television and written journalism) on completion of language degree.

Client comment: "The translation was excellent. Our Communication Manager commented: "It was a real treat to enjoy this translation." It would be great if he could do all translations of this kind."
