Media & Press

Conferences, guest posts, articles & podcasts

Outside of my translation and editing work I write articles and give talks at conferences. Both for the translation and chemical industries. If you’d like to interview me on all things translation, international marketing or business, book me as a speaker, or to write an article, you can get in touch here. Here’s a selection of what I’ve been up to recently.
