I’ve been working in translation for more than 30 years since graduating with a BA (Hons.) in Modern Languages from Wolverhampton in 1977, although in those days it was known as Wolverhampton Polytechnic.
After graduation I worked for 10 years as a (and to my knowledge the only) staff translator for Imperial Tobacco, leaving due to redundancy in 1988.
My career then took me away from professional translation for 2 years (I worked as an office manager for Sustrans), although I did keep my hand in with some small and not so small language commissions.
I returned to professional translation in 1990, a move I’ve never regretted. Over the years I have worked for both private and agency clients on a wide range of subject matter – insurance claims, scientific research papers, intellectual property matters (specialising in patents, trade marks), commercial correspondence, legal papers, etc.
My full CV will be posted here eventually. In the meantime, please feel free to view my LinkedIn profile.
In addition, I’m also Chair of St Werburghs Community Association, Bristol’s oldest inner city community association.
Please feel free to contact me.
