Passionate about both languages and sport, my business combines the written word in its various forms and the fast-paced world of professional competition.
"Heather’s professionalism and wide-ranging capabilities have been an outstanding feature of her tenure in the WorldSBK championship. I would heartily recommend her work and her work ethic to anyone."
Gordon Ritchie, journalist
A little of my story so far...
British born and raised, I've lived in Italy for around 15 years. For the last decade my work has had something of a motorsports focus.
With lengthy experience in the motorsport sector, in the F1, MotoGP and World SBK paddocks, I wear several 'hats'. I work directly with teams and riders in my role as press officer, with international motorcycle publications as a freelance journalist and with numerous companies and agencies as a freelance translator, working on projects not only in the automotive / motorsports fields but across sectors as diverse as fashion, travel & tourism, marketing & PR, commerce, technical, ceramics, luxury goods, and food & drink. (My PR work was covered by Portuguese magazine 'Motociclismo', click here to view).
I am ready and waiting to provide you with any (or all!) of the above-mentioned services. My fast, flexible and friendly 'get it done' approach has allowed me to build up a wealth of experience and contacts across the motorsport industry.
My background is in languages and I hold a Masters degree in Translation (Bristol University, UK) as well as a Bachelor's degree in Italian and Spanish (Hull University, UK). In addition to Italian and Spanish, I have good knowledge of German and French, as well as basic Greek. I am a full member of both the British Chartered Institute of Linguists and the British Chartered Institute of Public Relations. I hold diplomas in Copywriting, Social Media Marketing and Journalism and am currently studying for a University Certificate in Psychology.
I translated "Marco Simoncelli: The Tribute Book" (Haynes, 2013) for the English-speaking market.
