A graduate from St John’s College, Oxford, I started doing freelance translation in March 2012 and have worked on a variety of projects. I have also spent the past three months working in a local translation agency in Sheffield. As well as some practical experience in translation, this role has given me an insight into the working life of translators and translation project managers. I am very aware of the importance of professionalism, flexibility, collaboration with project managers and timeliness in order for translations to be delivered on time and to the highest standards. I look forward to gaining further experience and expanding my portfolio of translation work.
