My Background

After graduating with distinction from a B.A. in Applied Languages at the University of Limerick, I moved to Germany and lived for many years in Baden-Württemberg.

I started my career in professional translation there, in the roles of in-house technical translator and translation project manager at a well-known global Language Service Provider. This was followed by a position as senior financial translator and proofreader in the internal translation department of a Big Four auditing firm.

Alongside a proven academic track record, this rich experience of different corporate environments allowed me to develop broad expertise in the translation industry as well as a deep understanding of client needs across a wide variety of sectors.

At the same time, I completed the state exam for certified translators in Germany and became a sworn legal translator.

After returning to Ireland in 2007, I completed an M.A. in Intercultural Studies at Dublin City University. I have been based in Dublin as a self-employed translator ever since!
