International Development

My lifelong interest in international development and a passion for affording everyone a decent standard of living and the opportunity to better their lives have been driving forces in my career as a translator.

This has been strengthened by my face-to-face interpreting experience with refugees and victims of human right abuses and my own experience growing up in Sudan.  I am of course thoroughly familiar with the potential challenges and sensitive cultural factors involved.

I provide a translation and interpreting service for NGOs and the voluntary sector, with a focus on humanitarian work, human rights, sustainable development, governance, public health and disease control, educational policy, anti-corruption and counter terrorism.

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