ABOUT ME: I graduated from Thammasat University with a bachelor's degree in French and English. While studying at the university, I was awarded a one-year scholarship from the French government to be an exchange student at the Center for Applied Linguistics at Franche-Comte University in Besancon, France, where I earned a diploma in French Studies. Following my time in France, I went into the field of international banking at Krung Thai Bank Pcl in Chiang Mai, Thailand. At the age of 32, I decided to quit banking to continue my studies and attended the University of Auckland in New Zealand. While studying for my master's, I analyzed the process whereby a European-descended New Zealander had learned the endangered Maori language spoken by the country's indigenous people of the same name. I received my master's degree in 2004 in applied language studies and linguistics. I have been working as a contract lecturer in English at Maejo University in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and works for a range of translation companies and private clients at home and abroad. In addition to my Thai mother tongue, I speak English fluently and French at an advanced level. MY SPECIALTIES: art, banking & finance (FOREX, securities, int'l finance etc.), business & commerce, cosmetics, education & pedagogy & ELT, food & hospitality, human resource, humanities, language & linguistics, legal (contract, agreement, law etc.), life sciences (medical, healthcare, pharmaceutical, clinical trial, PROs etc.), management, market research, research, social sciences and sociology. MY CORE SERVICES: translation, editing & proofreading & review, transcreation, linguistic validation, linguistic quality control (reconciliation & verification), voice-over/narration, transcription, subtitle & transcription & audio translation, language assessment, research, interpreting.
I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!
