I have worked for the past 16 years as Spanish-English-Spanish Interpreter for the NHS, Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals, and Health Clinics. I left because the pay didn't cover my expenses. I have a CRB certificate. I am interested in literary translations such as novels, poetry, and drama. I have worked as an actress for over 30 years using several languages. I have a BA Hns in French, speak also italian, and some German as I lived in Germany for 5 years. As earnings are so meagre, I also run a small business dealing with antiques. I specialize in antique and art glass 1770-1940, and costume jewellery 1860-1950. I travelled on business to Europe as I can speak Spanish, French, Italian and some German. i have also a considerable knowledge of music, ballet, drama and films. I can drive cars and vans. I have also an interest in fashion. I am a very good photographer.
