News, features, music, cinema, wine, food, photography, and fine art are just some of the areas in which I have translation experience. My background includes nearly 20 years editing and writing nonfiction on a wide variety of topics, and in that time I've become very good at balancing accuracy with lively prose.
Now, I use this skill on behalf of my translation clients. They receive polished, accurate, natural translations, on time and with excellent customer service.
I also have considerable experience working with texts on medical, technical, and pharmaceutical topics. Business communication, including internal correspondence, corporate publications such as reports and newsletters, and B2B and B2C marketing advertising copy, is another of my strong suits.
To be versatile, skilled, dependable, and easy to work with is the goal I set for myself. I'm continually pursuing strategic learning opportunities in subject matter and language topics, and my day-to-day actions back these strategies up.
My mother tongue is US English, and I have several years of experience (including a master's degree and many professional projects) working in British English.
Through my clients, I have performed translations for firms including:
- Trade and mass-market publications
- Artists, art galleries, and museums
- Specialty culinary companies
- One of the largest worldwide entertainment promotions companies in its segment
- Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers
- Major multinational telecommunications companies
- Top multinational industrial and transport groups
I have training at the post-graduate level in both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, in institutional and public-service contexts including government, business, medical, and legal.
My clients have repeatedly praised my attention to detail, my prompt delivery of work, and the overall quality of my translations. I stand by my work, and I am happy to demonstrate my skill by translating a sample text free of charge*.

My commitment to confidentiality
As part of my commitment to professionalism, I adhere to the confidentiality requests made by my clients. Therefore, I will not publicly identify the specific firms with which I have worked, nor will I share the documents I have worked on for them without their express consent. I am proud of my work and it would be nice to display it publicly, but discretion is important to my clients, and their satisfaction is more important to me. (So is legal compliance!)
