Translation is very often imperfect. It retains the syntax of the original, reproduces the flaws, and simply doesn't sound quite right.

A lot of the time, that doesn't matter. If you just want to convey a message and aren't worried by stylistic niceties, a less-than-excellent translation will do fine. It can even convey an endearing sense of foreignness, like IKEA's refusal to translate the names of its products.

But sometimes second best won't do, and that's where I can help. I write flawless, publication-quality English that doesn't look translated.

I can turn my hand to any subject area that's not highly technical. If your text is about patents or pharmacology or particle physics, I'm not the person for you.

These are some of the things I do:

Creative advertising and marketing texts. I've produced copy for brands like BMW, Cartier, Google, Swarovski and Volkswagen, and I can translate anything that uses finely crafted words to sell things to people. I also do crisp, persuasive English copywriting to a brief.

Arts and media. I've done books, exhibition catalogues, academic papers, and large numbers of museum and art gallery audioguides.

Finance. Before I decided that I preferred words to numbers and became a translator, I trained as an accountant and worked as a financial analyst for Citibank. So I know my way around a company annual report.

Legal documents. Translating a contract or court judgment isn't something you'd normally associate with creativity. But reproducing the exact meaning of the original, and making it read elegantly using plain English, is a skill in itself.

You'll find some samples of my translations, English copywriting, and newspaper journalism on my website. If you like them, please contact me for a quotation.
