I’m Katie and I am the newest member of the Lingua Translations team! I am delighted to have been offered a job here at Lingua Translations, taking over from Michela whilst she is on maternity leave, as Sales Administrator.

In the past I have worked in a variety of sectors including; events management, retail, and education, but I am most pleased to finally be in an environment which is in my interests and which I have worked towards. I like to bring everything I have experienced to each new role I undertake and am looking forward to my time at Lingua Translations, within a team with such passion for all things language related. As soon as I began my time here, it was obvious that all members of the Lingua Translations team are so devoted and fanatical about the world of languages, I am truly impressed and cannot wait to get to know you all!

I am a graduate in BA Linguistics and Spanish and have been looking to join the language services for the past year. I spent a year abroad teaching English in my third year at university in Teruel, Spain, a very small city in the region of Aragón. This improved my Spanish language skills enormously, as there were only a handful of English speakers in the town. During this time I was employed through the British Council, like many language students, to a bilingual secondary school and learnt a huge amount about myself, mainly that I did not wish to pursue a career in secondary education, but that I have an obsession with all things Spanish!

A little about me – I absolutely love to travel and try to visit friends abroad at any chance I get. I have also lived and worked short term in many Asian countries including; Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore, with my parents’ events company and so diving into new cultures and with that, getting over language barriers has been a part of my life from a young age. I am hoping to assist in driving the business forward by bringing my experience and passion to the workplace. I hope to become a part of any new exciting adventures that arise for Lingua Translations team, as well as taking on different challenges within the office.

In my free time I enjoy keeping fit and am attempting my first half marathon in September. I LOVE cooking and enjoy a good dinner party, I am also keen supporter of rugby (Ospreys), flavoured cider, and love to take advantage of living by the beach! Hooray to new, exciting times ahead!
