Frances Clarke BA(Hons), DipTransIOL, MCIL
Based in Saffron Walden, near Cambridge, I studied German and Italian at Durham University before embarking on a career in corporate finance. After several years in London as a corporate finance and investment management analyst, I returned to my roots as a linguist to become a full-time freelance German to English translator. I was awarded the Diploma in Translation by the Chartered Institute of Linguists in May 2013, and became a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists the same year.
My prior experience within the financial sector provides me with a solid understanding of and familiarity with company and market documentation and the communication requirements of both the authors and readers of such documents. I translate for a variety of end clients including leading European banks and investment funds.
I am also able to harness a lifelong fascination with sport to produce well-crafted sports translations, including match reports, news articles, press releases, marketing materials and statistical handbooks. My end clients include internationally recognised sports clubs, national sporting associations and international governing bodies.
