My background enables me to offer translation services which often meet a customer’s demands more effectively than large translation units — for example in fields where it is important to communicate with the public in everyday Welsh. My background in design also means I am not restricted to working within Microsoft Word and am able to offer translation services where the English text is already in a design or layout programme.
