I am a skilled freelance translator with more than 20 years’ experience, providing quality translations for a wide range of companies. I translate from German, French and Welsh into English, and am a full member of the ITI and the Society of Authors.
A former Chartered Surveyor, I am also a publishednovelist and short story-writer. The skills learned in both areas are important in helping me to convey the right register in a translation, whether it’s a practical information text requiring precision and technical understanding, or a work of literary fiction requiring close attention to the author’s voice.
Areas of expertise include: literary translation, travel and tourism, marketing, building and architecture, business texts, contracts. Clients include: translation agencies, publishers, tourist boards, holiday companies, construction companies, civil engineers and manufacturers.
Technical information: I use translation memory software MemoQ to ensure consistency and accuracy.
