As a native English speaker, certified SDL translator and post-editor, full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, Proz.com PRO translator and TEFL qualified English teacher, I am passionate about helping people with all their language needs. I have a BA Modern Languages, Translation and Interpreting (First Class Honours) from Newcastle University.
I specialise in legal and financial texts, with a particular interest in documents relating to family law and annual accounts/auditor’s reports. Through my own experience trying to navigate international administrative and government bodies, I was inspired to set up a language company that prioritises excellent customer service and takes the time to guide clients through the process. Conscious that translation and interpreting services are often required during stressful/complex times, I want to help by at least taking care of any language issues. Having volunteered teaching French and English in Senegal, Madagascar and Togo, I have also seen first-hand how mastering other languages can open doors and change lives.
