French interpreter West Midlands

ABOUT ME

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

I am a highly educated, multi-lingual, West Midlands based MBA professional having spent over 30 years in interpreting, translation and training in the UK. I acted as interpreter for Monsieur Laurent Bayle, President de la Philharmonie de Paris, at the annual conference of British Orchestras at the Hyatt hotel in Birmingham. I have travelled and worked in numerous locations in the world, completing a weeklong interpreting assignment involving 22 delegates from eleven countries at the Rockefeller Centre, Lake Como, Italy.

I have completed projects for the BBC (Midlands) and Thames Television (Britain's Got Talent, Midlands), Bournville College Centenary Celebrations (Son et lumière artists and lighting experts from Lyons) as well as participating in the Tracey Emin inspired exhibition "Thrift Radiates Happiness" at Birmingham Central Art Gallery. I did extensive interpreting and translation work ENGLISH / SPANISH / FRENCH for the Improving Forest Governance Programme at the University of Wolverhampton, working in and out of all three languages for delegates from Latin America and Francophone Africa. I further completed a year long contract for Elmhurst School for Dance (Birmingham Royal Ballet).

DPSI I am a fully qualified interpreter in French and Spanish and am on the National Register of Public Service Interpreters in both languages. I work regularly for West Midlands Police, Birmingham Crown and Magistrates Courts, as well as numerous private sector clients, specialising in the automotive industry.
MEMBERSHIP Formerly a full member, I have withdrawn from the CiOL in protest at their inaction concerning the outsourcing and subsequent poverty rates paid by the privatised Ministry of Justice interpreting service.
SOLE TRADER I am a West Midlands based sole trader, not a language agency. No part of your fee will be paid to an Agency, you will at no time deal though a third party. I will be your partner throughout, will do the work myself and you will communicate directly with me. Should you prefer to use an Agency, please ensure their interpreters are DPSI qualified and check the registration number as many agencies use unqualified interpreters not worthy of the name.
COMMUNICATION I will endeavour to reply to you within one hour, always the same day.
CRB CHECK I have enhanced disclosure, available for clients to view at any time. In April 2014 I was granted NPPV 3 Clearance for all UK Police Forces including the Metropolitan Police.
