About Me

Conscientious and reliable, I transform German into English without changing the meaning or effect. With over 10 years of experience – encompassing texts ranging from detailed technical specifications to creative marketing documents – I will work with you to ensure that you get what you need from your translations.

I studied German at school and university, during which time I made plenty of trips to German-speaking countries to practise my language skills. More recently I’ve become an avid conference-goer, attending ELIA Together in Berlin in February 2017, ITI Conference in nearby Cardiff in May 2017 and BP18 in Vienna in April 2018. These keep me abreast of developments in translation technology and offer insights into everything from better writing to client management. Also, I frequently attend a German Conversation Group to maintain my spoken German and I read widely to improve both my German comprehension and my English writing skills.

One of the things I love most about my job is the great linguistic network I’ve become part of. Here in South Wales, we have a close community of translators, offering a wealth of expertise far greater than the sum of its parts. I find it indispensable for language queries and technical support, so feel free to contact me regarding other language combinations and I’ll do my best to point you in the direction of one of my excellent colleagues.
