Professional practices Rowena Fuller endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Passionately in love with the English language from a very early age, I suppose that translation was the obvious choice of career for me! Having said that, it was not an immediate choice. I have worked as a civil servant, picture frame maker, retail jeweller, bar manageress, cook and foster mother (which is still a very happy part of my life).

I have been translating since 1989, and thoroughly enjoy the challenge that each new translation offers. I have no minimum order and will cheerfully translate a three line e-mail if somebody needs it.
My first professional translation project was a series of documentary films for GMT Productions, Paris, entitled Man and Plants. This was prior to the PC, and involved carbon paper, correction fluid and very sore fingers. The translation was accepted by the BBC and I have never looked back. The largest job I ever did was the electrical and safety specifications for the Channel tunnel (as part of a 4-man team) - a massive job that had to be delivered in hard copy in seven large cardboard boxes!

I adore culinary translation, as I am an enthusiastic cook and taster. I enjoy the challenge of legal translation (especially contracts), and am at ease with engineering and nuclear power technology. I never touch medical translation as I simply do not have the knowledge required.

I have been lucky in working with a lot of very professional and friendly agencies, and now count several customers among my personal friends. Freelancing is ideal for me, as my work with the children takes up certain hours of the day, and I work best in the silence of 3 o'clock in the morning! I never, ever fail to meet a deadline, and I do have a 'secret weapon' - every translation is re-read by my husband and hardest critic, an English teacher and published author.

In terms of confidentiality, fear not! We live in the Morvan Natural Park in north east France, surrounded by glorious mountains and lakes, large white cows and very few people, so your secrets are safe with me! Under the nickname of rowsiedawn I am usually available on Skype for emergency work.
