I offer services in the fields of translation, interpreting and language teaching services. No matter how big or small the job, I approach them all with the professionalism, dedication and attention to detail necessary to ensure that the job is completed successfully and to your requirements.

Let me give you a new voice through my language services.

 

Interpreting

Interpreting is the transferral of the spoken word from one language to another. Let me help you to communicate flawlessly with your Spanish and Portuguese speaking clients, associates or doctors.

Please contact me with details of the assignment – duration, subject matter, location and any other relevant requirements for a full quote.

 

Translation

Translation is the conversion of the written word from one language to another.

Let me help you to spread the word about your services, research or products to those who you would not otherwise be able to reach.

My specialist fields are:

  • Medical (including patient reports, admission and diagnosis, medical device histories)
  • Pharmaceutical (such as SmPCs, PILs, PLs)
  • NGOs (in particular relating to sustainable agriculture, water sourcing and human rights)
  • Agroecology and permaculture
  • Renewable Energies
  • Personal correspondence

The key to successful translations is communication. I endeavour to work closely with all my customers to ensure a good working relationship and translations of the best possible quality.

If you have some work that you want quoting, please send me the following details to allow me to provide you with an accurate quote.

– subject matter of the text: legal, environmental etc. (sample of the text would always be useful)

– purpose of the translation and target audience

– length of text and file format (for text received and also what required for the finished translation)

– deadline for work

– any house style that may need to be adhered to
