Hello!

About me

I am a Freelance French-English Translator, specialising in Marketing, Business, Beauty and Fashion. I 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 2019. 

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. After gaining A-level French, I studied French and Italian at Trinity College Dublin. I went on to work in Marketing in New York and London, before settling in the Cotswolds, where I grew up. I am based in the beautiful, picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water. 

I love combining my knowledge of marketing, business and beauty 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 thereby achieve the results they're looking for.
