About Me

For more than 30 years I have been working in applications of satellite Earth Observation for environmental monitoring and mapping – specialising in agriculture and land cover/land use. This includes international development experience working in English, Spanish and French – including Mali, Niger, Argentina and Peru. A native English speaker from the United Kingdom, qualified to the European C1 level in both French (DALF) and Spanish (DELE), since September 2018 I have been using this technical experience to translate into English your French and Spanish material on the technical areas I am familiar with: earth observation, geographic information, environment and agriculture. For my technical background see I also translate in the field of outdoor leisure, based on personal experience of running, mountaineering, skiing and cycling.

Current translation work includes:

- tasks for Translators without Borders, I am a Kato verified translator for both my language pairs

- technical translation of project materials from English into Spanish for an earth observation project with a technical consultancy.

- freelance translator for various agencies.
