FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
I currently accept the following payment methods:
Bank transfer (including international).
I charge in £, but I am also willing to accept $ and € upon request.
WHAT IS YOUR WORK EXPERIENCE?
So far, I've held three in-house jobs since graduating from my Masters in 2017:
Working in the neurology department of a French hospital
Working for a small language service provider (LSP), providing mainly legal and technical translations
Working for a large, international LSP, providing translations for the life sciences sector
I learnt so many things in each of these roles and the experience has been invaluable. Although I'm still at a relatively early stage in my freelance translation career, it is my firm belief that 'experience' on paper doesn't always reflect professional ability. I have been so fortunate to have benefitted from modern, current teachings and schools of thought, and in-depth knowledge of up-to-date technologies and methodology. My passion and fascination for all aspects of languages and culture, as well as having the opportunity to provide a service to others, motivates me on a daily basis.
I am continuously growing, learning and building upon what I know.
