Conor in a few words

MA Interpreting and Translating (French and Spanish) graduate from the University of Bath. I am currently looking for opportunities to gain more experience in the translation industry and build my ongoing portfolio of work. I am an active member of two professional associations - the ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting) and CIOL (Chartered Institute of Linguists - and am actively working towards specialisms in sports translation and food and drink-related translation. I have recently been collaborating with the NGOs Translators Without Borders and ATD Quart Monde, providing my translation services for a good cause. Now, however, my goal is to build my own professional clientele at Conor Dunne Language Services.

My goal is to help your words travel worldwide. I am both familiar and comfortable with translating complex French and Spanish notions into accurate, concise and idiomatic English. Although I am more of a generalist translator now, I am actively working towards specialising in two areas: sports and food and drink-related translation.

MA Interpreting and Translating Student

Bath, United Kingdom

September 2019 - August 2020

Passed with Merit.

The MA Interpreting and Translating offered at the University of Bath is a vocational course grounded in theory and practice, one which seeks to train keen linguists to become professional language service providers. The course offers students an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the theoretical and professional frameworks of both interpreting and translation. Over the course of the year I translated a wide variety of texts - from legal documents to advertisements to French/Spanish literature - and trained in a range of interpreting types: Simultaneous Interpreting, Consecutive Interpreting and Public Service Interpreting.
