I'm an English native speaker from the UK, and I also speak Spanish and Mandarin. I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Translation Studies with Distinction and am a fully certified member of NZSTI (New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters.) I enjoy languages because I am so interested in people from different places. I believe translation is really important in helping to bring people together.
