My professional experience ranges from marketing in the fields of tourism and culture to teaching English to business professionals and guiding English-language visitors on tour in Europe.Resident in France since the 1990s after completing a BA degree in English literature and drama studies in my native Dublin, I went freelance in 2009 and now use my varied experience and my eye for detail to produce quality translations into English, to proofread and edit documents written by native and non-native English-speaking writers and to produce original writing in English.
Translation from French to English, specializing in the areas of tourism, gastronomy and literature.
In-depth knowledge of France and French culture as seen through the eyes of a non-native.
Proofreading and editing in English with a keen eye for spelling and grammar mistakes.
I also have experience in recording voiceovers for telephone messaging systems (Irish/ British English)
