    The Hydrogen Translator

    Drawing on over 10 years of experience in the industry, I provide translation from German and French to English, with a special emphasis on hydrogen, smart homes, renewable energy, heating systems and the environment. As a trained technical translator with a flair for words, I’m adept at both manuals and marketing. So if you are looking for a trusted translator who brings precision to technical docs and punch to PR, please do drop me a line. I very much look forward to hearing from you.

    Volunteer French Teacher

    Manorbrook Primary School

    I ran a popular French club and loved finding new and exciting ways to engage the children. I used a wide range of activities to help develop speaking and listening skills, including songs, rhymes and games. I particularly enjoyed sharing the traditions of French-speaking countries, from Cameroonian chants and French Easter chocolates to Belgian waffles and Saint-Nicolas.
