Law and finance:
Having worked in the legal sector for a total of four years, I offer expert translations of court procedure documents, official documents, contracts and insurance documents. I also have extensive experience collaborating on reports and policy documents for NGOs, international institutions and EU bodies. I also translate financial texts such as reports, prospectuses, statements and more.
I offer pitch-perfect and customised translations of promotional material for a variety of sectors such as tourism and travel, luxury goods, sustainable development, real-estate, finance and education. With extensive experience in the field of marketing translation, I am ideally placed to ensure your product reaches your target audience.
Editing involves the reviewing of documents to improve the quality of the written text. This can involve correcting errors, making stylistic changes to improve the “flow” and checking terminology for consistency. Proofreading means checking a text carefully to identify and correct typographical errors, distorted syntax and problems with style. I offer editing and proofreading services of English language documents.
Interpreting is oral (spoken) translation from one language to another. With a background in community interpreting for the Irish courts, I provide consecutive interpreting services from French into English for a variety of face-to-face settings including visits, meetings, interviews, and casual conversations (Germany-based only).
