Work Experience as a Translator
My translation experience is made up of a combination of in-house and freelance activities:
- In-house French legal translation for a corporate law firm in Paris, translating legal documents and correspondence.
- In-house localisation testing of video games and websites for a Glasgow-based localisation company.
- Freelance translation activities in a variety of subject areas.
- Pro bono: I am a member of Translations for Progress, a charitable organisation coordinating pro bono translations for organisations such as NGOs.
I also have industry-specific experience, having worked in Finance prior to starting work as a translator. My background in Finance (one year as a trainee auditor for a firm of accountants and a period of IT controls testing for a financial services company) has led me into a significant amount of financial translation.
I belong to a large network of translators and can connect you with translators working in other language combinations, many of whom specialise in other areas such as medical, literary and scientific translation. If you need the same document translated to or from another language I will try to arrange this for you. Whatever your needs, it is worth getting in touch and I can point you in the right direction.
