Professional practices Heather McCrae endorses's Professional Guidelines.


I love translating and the continuous learning that translation involves. I read extensively in various subject fields to keep up to date. In over 23 years of full-time freelance translation, I have always met my deadlines and provided the best possible translations. This is proven by the fact that I have worked for some of my agencies/customers for more than 12 years in many cases.

I don't spend much time advertising myself or trying to profile myself here, I just want to get on with my work and do a good job. Any agencies/direct customers that take me on their books will find that I am reliable, trustworthy, not afraid to ask questions or ask for help. My aim is to build up a long-term and friendly relationship with my agencies/direct customers. I am always happy to learn about new translation topics/software if requested to do so.

I look forward to working with you.

Best regards Heather McCrae
