We publicise a member profile every Monday here on our website, on our Facebook page, on Twitter @NWTN_UK and on LinkedIn. If you want to join us in this opportunity to share a little about yourself with your fellow NWTN members, download the questionnaire from the Member Resources area and send it to our Comms Officer.
Where do you live/work?
Flintshire, North Wales.
Are you mainly a translator or interpreter or both? What languages?
Translator – French and Russian to English.
What are your specialist fields?
IT and general business communications at the moment.
What’s the strangest/most interesting project you’ve ever worked on?
I loved working on a role-playing game based in mediaeval France.
Tell us about a particularly proud moment in your translation career:
I’m always happy when I get positive feedback on a job.
Tell us two reasons why you like being a translator/interpreter:
I like the variety of topics and work, and finding out a little bit about a lot of subjects. I also love the flexibility of being a freelancer.
What is the most interesting place where you have lived/visited?
Tricky – I haven’t lived in that many places, but have visited a lot. I would say that everyone should visit the Grand Canyon at least once in their life – it’s so awe-inspiring.
What are your plans for professional development or a new field you’d like to work in?
I’d like to move into tourism and history, if I can
Tell us something not many people know about you:
I love tap dancing!
