  • Texts from the world of cinema and television including news articles relating to these forms of entertainment.

Between my specialisations and other domains I have worked on, I have dealt with many different types of documents – business contracts, guidelines, specifications and (legal) regulations, company newsletters, academic writing, scripts, promotional material, and many more.   I am therefore not just at ease with the domains I work with but also with different types of text and registers.

My flight path to my specialisations

Trio of images within a circle - an airplane in a blue sky, a collage of words associated with culture, Roman ruins.

I navigated my way towards this particular set of specialisations after clocking up mileage in these and various other domains on my translation journey and deciding they were the domains I liked the most, architecture and interior design in particular.

Personal interests, and to some extent certain previous training and employment, also played a part in my decision.
