Translation & Journalism

Without translation, we would be living in provinces bordering on silence.
-George Steiner

Translation

I  am a FR/IT-ENG translator with experience in the literary, cultural, commercial and legal sectors. I hold a Second Class Honours BA degree in French, Italian and European Studies, specialising in translation. Words are my trade and both my own writing and my translations are crafted with the utmost precision, fluency and creativity. I am passionate about recognition for translators and introducing foreign literature to the UK, especially children’s stories.

My main areas of work include fiction (especially children’s fiction, historical fiction and fantasy), culture, art, history, travel, feminism, politics and journalism and religion.

Most recently I have translated two books for publication by Black Dog & Leventhal; a 90,000 words FR-ENG cookbook (Secrets of the Butcher) and a 40,000 words IT-ENG children’s atlas (Maps of the World). I regularly translate wine-related documents including wine labels, company guidelines, tour and tasting brochures, colour charts and websites. Other translations include a doctoral thesis on the internationalisation of musuems for publication in the US (2019), legal documents and restaurant menus, websites and a business plan for two bed and breakfast companies. I also write reader reports.

I charge £0.09 per word, the minimum rate recommended by the UK Translators Association. Available 6 days a week.


Journalism

I have also worked as a freelance writer for various publications including Life Learning magazine, Spire & Co’, Verily Magazine, the British Chambers of Commerce blog, My French Life Magazine, The Bookseller and Writing Magazine.
