My biography and experience

Hello!

My name is Vanessa Walsh and I currently live in Bavaria, Germany. I grew up in southern Ontario, Canada, and spoke both English and French in school.

I attended Queen's University in eastern Ontario and graduated with an Honours Arts Bachelor in 'French Studies,' 'International Studies,' and competency certificates in German and Spanish. In short, "Foreign Languages." I've also taken advantage of opportunities throughout my education to immerse myself within the languages I wished to learn, living in cities such as Brussels, Belgium, Lyon, France, and now, Freising, Germany.

I have also been heavily involved in politics and education during the past several years of my life, in both work and volunteer capacities, building my skills in communication, writing, and editing - for varying demographics. I have three years of professional, uninterrupted translation, editing, post-editing, and writing experience.

Having worked hard over the past twelve years to improve my French, I work as a Business English and French teacher, on top of my linguistic work in Bavaria, furthering my skills in German and Business English/French grammar. I hope to pursue a Masters Degree in Applied Linguistics and Translation in Winterthur, Switzerland in the coming year.

I specialize in creative writing and literature, so if you're looking to have your literary or academic work professionally translated, whether it be a novel, website, historical manual, or anything similar, I'd be more than happy to help you out! I also have experience in light legal, technical, and e-commerce related translation and editing. 

All of that said, I am no stranger to hard work and setting my mind to a task with the intent of accomplishing it to the best of my ability and more. Working with languages is a passion of mine and I'm looking forward to building my translation experience here - helping out wherever I can!  Feel free to reach out at 11vhw@queensu.ca
