Political Science

My lifelong interest in political science and a passion for education, equality and human rights have been driving forces in my career as a translator.

This has been strengthened by my face-to-face interpreting experience with victims of torture and persecution.  I have also interpreted and translated for social workers, in family courts and for child protection and mental health.  I am of course thoroughly familiar with the sensitive cultural factors involved.

I provide a translation and interpreting service for NGOs and the voluntary sector, with a focus on human rights, health and education, working with refugees and immigrants to remove the barriers between the Arabic- and English-speaking communities.

I shall be happy to become involved in charity projects, voluntary organisations and campaigns supporting human rights, anti-corruption or counter terrorism.

In these vital areas my translations will enable you to state your case and make your point concisely, convincingly and cogently.

Why not contact me today to discuss how I can help you express your ideas and reach an ever wider audience?
