Statement: Through 18 years’ working in the language industry – as a project manager, PhD researcher and freelance linguist – I have developed strong specialisms in academic editing and marketing translation/transcreation (especially food, travel, tourism and sports/outdoor clothing). I am very passionate and knowledgeable about food, which helps me with my favourite kind of project – translating/localizing French recipes and food writing. As a UK English language consultant, I have worked long-term on eCommerce localization for a major US athletic footwear and clothing brand. I have translated three short books in a young adult historical fiction series.
