Amy Cheshire - French & Spanish to English

7 years translation experience as a full-time freelance translator
Full member of the SFT (French society of translators)

I moved to France in 2002, immediately after completing my degree in business and modern languages. For five years I worked in internationally-focused businesses including a French holiday accommodation provider, a wine export company and an engineering firm specializing in geographical services. In all of these positions, I automatically became in-house translator - a role which I loved.

I now work full-time as a freelance translator. I love my job and believe that my earlier varied career brings a real advantage to my skills as a translator.
As well as French, I am fluent in Spanish having taught English and travelled in Spain & Latin America for 18 months.

My specialist fields of work include:
Business & Marketing
Gastronomy & Oenology/Wine
Tourism & travel
Urban development
International development
Sailing & surfing
France, its traditions and current affairs

I strive to provide a high standard of work and always communicate with the client concerning my translation choices, any grey areas, problems with the source text etc.
Having worked in business, I understand the importance of being reactive and meeting deadlines.
I read English publications and listen to UK news and radio regularly which help me stay in touch with the latest uses of the language.

As part of an ongoing effort to expand my knowledge in wine, in July 2017, I successfully passed the WSET Level 3 award on Wines & Spirits (in English).
