Freelancer translator and copywriter

Jan 1990

Former sales and managing director of a company in France in the satellite television industry. I speak, read and write excellent French. I pride myself on perfect UK English grammar, spelling, syntax, semantics and idiom and undertake copywriting, (particularly with a marketing element), in UK English, and translation from French to UK English. I can also offer US English if required.
