Translator of the Week: Alison High

This week’s translating heroine is our special Alison High!!!

Alison completed a very important project from Russian into English on a very tight deadline. We were surprised by her professional attitude and ability to manage her time! So a round of applause for Alison!

This amazing woman interprets and translates from Russian and French into English. Now based in the French speaking part of Switzerland, she completed a BA in Modern Languages in the UK, before achieving a Postgraduate Diploma in Interpreting and Translation Studies. Since 1991 Alison has been working as a freelance translator for several important organisations. Organisations such as the World Meteorological Organisation, the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Secretariat for the Convention to Combat Desertification.
Some of the fields she specialists in are patents, calls to tender, IT and quality assurance documents, although these are only a few of her specialist areas. She is also fully computer literate and can handle HTML, Javascript and much more.

In her free time, Alison likes spending time outdoors, making dresses and cooking. However, she is also very passionate about digital photography and anything related to IT. Ranging from graphics and media to programming and websites.

What else can I say? Thanks again for your professional translations, it’s been a pleasure!!!
