I am British and graduated with an MA in linguistics from the University of Edinburgh in 1979. Most of my adult life has been spent in other countries. A successful language learner in my secondary school days, I have always been driven to acquire fluency in the language of my host countries. I have received formal instruction in several languages, but I am entirely self-taught in main source language of Turkish, which I learned during a lengthy period of residence in Turkey from 1987-1999. Without taking any prior course, I sat the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation examination in Turkish to English and passed with merit in all sections. I am currently a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

My experience of professional translation goes back to 1996 and I have been working as a freelance translator since settling in Cyprus in 2004.

Previously a financial specialist, receiving frequent work requests in the legal field, I responded to the demands of the market and, beginning in 2005, I started to study Turkish university textbooks covering various areas of that country’s legal system. I am now fully familiar with almost any legal or official document originating from the Republic of Turkey. An active share trader for most of my life, I am also very familiar with financial topics, including financial statements and accounting terminology. I studied Social Anthropology as an auxiliary subject at university, so I am no stranger to the terminology of the social sciences. I have had a lifelong interest in current affairs and history, so I am also very comfortable with texts in these fields. I often translate certificates and diplomas. Indeed, I can handle many different kinds of text with the exception of engineering, the physical sciences and medicine.
