Bio

(Formatting of this section is beyond my control)

Professional (human) translations from French, Dutch (Nl and Bel) and German into
idiomatic, grammatically correct
UK or US English by a genuine
native English translator

Linguistic background
I hold university degrees in French to MA level. Dual UK
and US national having lived in France,
the Netherlands, Germany and currently living in Brussels, I am fully fluent in all source languages and also fully conversant with the differences between NL and BEL
Dutch.  

A true generalist
translator able to translate a variety of fields, such as legal
(contracts/agreements of all sorts, travel and health insurance policies, IP,
pleadings, statements of defence, counterclaims, rulings, GDPR texts,
publications in Official Gazettes, terms and conditions, etc.), I am also a
very experienced marketing specialist in areas that include consumer-level
automotive texts, tourism, hotel and restaurant websites, luxury products etc. Other fields include
property/real estate (i.e. property ads, leases) HR, Health & Safety,
gastronomy(including menus, recipes and cookbooks), opera, vocal technique,
classical music, speeches (for government officials, university heads inter
alia), correspondence of all sorts, newspaper and academic articles, bios,
critics' reviews, etc.  

I also do
back-translations, proofreading, editing, transcriptions and translations from audio files and am willing to consider PEMT.

Please note:
I only accept texts that I know I can do well to a high professional standard. 

Please contact me via Proz for my CV, rates and all additional personal information.
