Service Description

I offer high-quality translations from Italian and German into English. I have experience of translating Internal Audit reports from Italian into English, and experience of translating financial reports to management from German to English. As a qualified Chartered Accountant I can provide excellent translations of financial matter.

I am a mother of 3 young children and an avid reader, so I am also very capable of translating non-financial work.

Last year I completed a proof-reading course, which will has improved my ability to offer excellent proof-reading services. It has also added to the quality of my final translations into English.

I am now also offering accounting and bookkeeping services, which would be provided subject to money laundering checks.
