My story

I both grew up and currently work between France and the UK as a bilingual French English legal translation expert. After attending Durham University, I then went on to Newcastle University to study Professional Translation and was awarded First Class Honours followed by a Distinction for my Master’s Research, collecting a string of awards for French language along the way.

It was during an intense period of study in London where I then sat the renowned DPSI examination to achieve recognition for my expertise in French – English translation and interpreting in the legal sector.

In 2013 I was head-hunted by Newcastle United to work as in-house interpreter for the football team where I regularly worked providing both verbal interpreting and written translation – often of sensitive legal contracts – between French and English, and made regular press appearances. Following the success of this contract, I then went on to work for a host of other Premier League football teams and media outlets as expert French English language service provider and went on in 2016 to work for the French Football Federation at Clairefontaine and the Olympique Lyonnais women’s team during their Champion’s League winning spell. You can read more about my French interpreting and translation with the football teams on the Press page.

For almost two-decades, I have racked up high-end clients as an expert French – English legal and financial translator, and I regularly work for Premier League football teams, international football teams, as well as leading law firms and financial companies in London, Paris and across the world.
