Anna Gething-Lewis has been working in the translation industry for over a decade. After completing a French degree at the University of Nottingham she spent 18 months teaching English to adults and children in Sardinia. Returning to the UK in 2003, she went to Durham University as a postgraduate where she was awarded an MA in Linguistics and Translation. Back in her home county of Gloucestershire, she worked as a project manager for a busy translation agency in Cirencester for several years before setting up her own business with a former colleague in 2007. When she moved to the Forest of Dean in 2010 she decided to embrace the challenges of being a freelance translator and hasn’t looked back. She has been a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists since 2007 and translates corporate, marketing, financial and legal texts from French and Italian into English.
