    About

    About

    MY BACKGROUND

    I have over 20 years’ experience providing multilingual support in various roles and countries. More recently, I have focused on translation, complementing my professional experience with a BA in Modern Language Studies and a Masters in Translation. I translate any non-technical texts and my specialism is crafting clear and elegant translations which are unencumbered by ‘translationese’.  I am a lifelong language learner, currently aspiring to add German to my working languages, and starting to decipher the complexities of Russian. My commitment to continuous professional development includes affiliation with the Chartered Institute of Linguists and the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, as well as regular webinars, workshops and activities to improve and add to my translation and linguistic skills. My interests are alternative health therapies, functional medicine, nutrition, fitness, yoga and meditation.

    I’ve worked with Tania Lines for a considerable time now and I am happy to recommend her as a talented linguist, excellent translator and a highly qualified professional. She utilises her lingual, cultural and technical expertise to put forth the best possible work. I highly recommend Tania if you need a professional French or Spanish to English translator. She is friendly, prompt and delivers high quality work.

    Arjun Dutta, Lingual Consultancy

    Ms. Lines has constantly demonstrated her linguistic expertise and her skill and sensibility in the management of international relations, as well as her timely completion of all work undertaken.

    Professor Armando Montanari, Italy

    This volume could not have been realised in the way and timeframe desired without the skill and continuous collaboration of Tania Lines, who took care of the linguistic editing and, where necessary, provided translations.
