Overview

I love the challenge of translating a variety of texts and ensuring that this is done to a very high standard. I have always enjoyed reading, writing and researching and have a very keen eye for detail. Translating allows me to fully utilise these interests and skills.
I have just over two years' experience working as a full-time in-house translator (DE/FR/ES - EN) as well as temporary, freelance and academic experience in translation. During this time, I have translated a wide variety of texts in the following specialist areas:...

Service Description

I am flexible and will always do my best to accommodate clients' timeframes and expectations in terms of rates. I usually discuss these with clients when submitting proposals for jobs and can work outside of normal business hours to ensure that a job is completed to the client's schedule. I will not commit to a job unless I am sure I can deliver by the deadline.

I am careful not to accept translation assignments that I feel are outside my areas of knowledge and all translation work I undertake is completed to a very high standard. I do not return translations until I am sure they are 100% accurate and they are all subjected to a thorough proofread, as well as QA checks using specialist software.

I am also very careful to ensure that client and source text information that I have access to in the course of my translation duties is kept strictly confidential.

I look forward to working with prospective clients and building long-term relationships.
