Hello!

About me

I am a Freelance French>English Translator, specialising in Marketing, Business, Beauty, Fashion, Travel and Tourism. I have a BA degree in French, hold the IoLET Level 7 Diploma in Translation, am an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, and I work with SDL Trados Studio 2021 and Memsource. 

After more than 10 years in Marketing, working on beauty brands in the UK and globally, with marketing experience in fashion, finance and publishing along the way, I decided to go back to my first love - languages.  

My passion for French began on the many family holidays I spent in France. I studied French and Italian at Trinity College Dublin and went on to work in Marketing in New York and London before settling in the Cotswolds, where I grew up. I live in the beautiful, picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water with my husband and two daughters. 

I love combining my knowledge of marketing, business, beauty, fashion and tourism with my passion for languages. Most importantly, it's hugely rewarding to make a difference for clients, by helping them to convey their message and achieve the results they're looking for.
