UK-based freelance translator working from French and Italian into English and enjoying every minute of it.
For me, translation represents both a passion and a profession. After completing a BA in French and Italian, my interest in translation really soared as I started my MA in Translation Studies.
My dedication to the subject saw me graduate with a distinction and, as well as receiving a commendation for my excellent results, my dissertation was described by the external marker as one of the best they had ever read.
Subsequently, I set up my own freelance translation company and, in the years that have followed, my site’s translation blog has been voted among the top 100 language professional blogs every year since its launch.
To this day, I’m still a translation fanatic.
Professionally, as well as working with an array of technical texts, my key specialism of sports translation has been developed over the course of several years working in the field while personal interest and more recent opportunities have allowed me to gain in-depth experience of social media and marketing translation.
Having worked on everything from athletics and app localization to press releases and philosophy, I have developed considerable expertise in a number of areas and always enjoy tackling new projects. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re looking for a quality translation.
Aside from all things translation, you can generally find me living life as a keen footballer, a weekend musician and a cat lover.
