Profile:
Translation is more than just a linguistic exercise. I get to the heart of your message and communicate it to your target audience.
I specialise in translation: both linguistic content and cultural context. The finished product is not just a translation of the original text; your message is delivered as if it were originally written in English.
British or American English
