Georgi McCarthy

I'm Georgi and I'm a freelance translator from French, Portuguese and Spanish into English. I live in Paris, although I'm originally from Yorkshire in the UK. I very much enjoy working with such a talented, worldwide team here at Global Voices, and doing something I love for a project that is so worthwhile.
