Service Description

When translating I like to pay particular attention to what the TT will be used for. I believe this allows me to produce top results.

I am currently studying for a Masters in Applied Translation at the University of Leeds, renowned for its wide range of translation technology and its practical approach to teaching on the course.

In the past I have translated many articles for magazines, and took on a huge 19,500 word project, which proved to me and proves to future employers that I am organised and get stuck in when a job needs done.

I also have substantial amounts of experience in journalism and would be more than happy to take on writing, proofreading or editing roles. My meticulous personality makes me a great proofreader.
