Professional practices Catherine Gilsenan endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
As a freelance translator, I work from both French and Spanish into English in a variety of fields: legal (such as correspondence, power of attorney, contracts, court rulings, birth/marriage/death certificates, etc.), medical (various), commercial (from correspondence to advertising on products) and general. I also work as a freelance interpreter.

I have been a member of the Institute (now Chartered) of Linguists since 1986, have a BA (Hon) as well as the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation.

I adhere to the Institute of Linguists' Code of Ethics, and always ensure that I meet the Client's requirements, including meeting deadlines.

I can bring the qualities of conscientiousness, sensitiveness, confidentiality, and flexibility to the business relationship, and have a proven track record.

"A professional service handled with care".

Since 1986 translated as part of various employments as a bilingual secretary including in London.
Worked in liaison with translators at Western European Union in London before it transferred to Brussels.
Translated documents for the Deputy Director of European Anti-Piracy Operations (Intellectual Property) for the Motion Picture Export Association of America.
Many confidential legal translations for private clients.
Translations for various agencies, including Leeds City Council.

I have always had very positive feedback from clients both verbally, and since I devised the Client Feedback Evaluation Questionnaires. For example, comments I have received include:

Accuracy of Translation: Excellent
Turnaround of Service: Excellent
Accessibility of Service: Excellent
Extent to which Translator met Client requirements and expectations: Excellent
Value for Money: Excellent

“Catherine gave a very professional service at competitive rates. The translation was done and delivered within days. Catherine found out relevant information and did what was required. Faultless service, highly recommended”

“Superb Service.”
