I have 17 years experience of legal and commercial French freelance interpreting and translation. I am also a UK qualified Solicitor and I regularly interpret and translate in legal settings such as for HM Courts and Tribunals Service, the Home Office, Solicitors and Law Centres, the Police, prisons and so on.
I also regularly interpret at business meetings and conference calls both face to face and by skype, video and telephone for clients in the UK and in France.
As a dual qualified lawyer – linguist I can offer a specialised and expert service way beyond services provided by non – legally qualified interpreters or translators.
I have a special interest in professional conduct and ethics as regards public service interpreters and often give talks and write articles on these issues.
My company Avocate also has a training arm and I present both webinars and face to face talks and workshops on matters related to setting up and enhancing freelance businesses such as assisting colleagues to draft terms and conditions for their websites and legal terminology support for colleagues working on translations and/ or sitting DPSI Law and Local Government examinations.
