UK-based freelance translator working from French 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.
I graduated with a distinction and subsequently set up my own freelance translation company. Since launching JALTranslation in 2013, I have worked with an array of global brands and institutions as a translator and proofreader, completed a PhD thesis in Translation Studies and offered mentoring services to a new generation of translators.
To this day, I’m still a translation fanatic.
Aside from being a huge sports fan (particularly football), I developed my key specialism of sports translation over the course of several years working in the field. Personal interest and more recent opportunities have also 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.
