Expert translation from Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan into English


    Ensuring your text or document is written in well-crafted, readable, idiomatic and precise English - that only a skilled native speaker would be able to produce - is the key to achieving the desired effect and impact, whatever the type of text and with any audience.


    I've been active as a professional translator since 2006, after gaining a BA in Linguistics and Languages and an MA in Translation and Linguistics, and have been working on a freelance basis since 2009. I offer in-depth knowledge of the languages I work from, together with a strong focus on tailoring the source text into fluent and accurate English (UK and US). I currently work with SDL Trados 2017.
    My main specialisms and past experience centre on:
    Legal, commercial and financialincluding contracts, business and financial reports, EU legislation and police reports, official documents, HR and training manuals
    Marketing and PR: including advertising and promotional material, press releases and sales brochures, B2B and B2C, transcreation and localisation
    General texts: including articles and journalistic pieces, academic literature, personal correspondence and creative writing 

    Editing: including revision, proofreading, copy editing, summaries and translation evaluation 

    I currently live in Barcelona but frequently return to the UK, and work with the Dutch of both the Netherlands and Belgium (Flemish), as well as European, South American and African varieties of Spanish and Portuguese, as well as Catalan.

    Please get in touch in order to discuss availability and costs. As an independent freelancer, I am able to offer competitive rates as well as flexibility and a one-on-one service.
