CV and references available upon request
I am a native English speaker and a freelance translator of French and German to English (UK and US), with over 17 years' professional experience, including as an in-house translator for companies in Germany and the UK. In my last two in-house positions, I was employed as a Senior Translator and therefore had the additional responsibility of training and mentoring junior translators, proofreading their work and providing them with structured feedback. I am accustomed to producing high-quality work under strict conditions and deadlines and also have sound experience in proofreading and quality assurance tasks.
I am interested in translation requests for my working languages and in my specialist areas, or other. I would also be interested in receiving requests for proofreading and/or editing documentation written in English and in providing my language services in the form of one-on-one tutoring in English or translation.
