Translators ideally should have what we might call the ‘gift of language’; something that makes them capable of travelling from one language to the other while respecting the genius and personality of both. Kate is one of those translators. And it shows wonderfully in her translations.
Toni Tobella, Incyta (translation agency)
Kate has a very special talent for translation and a high level of knowledge of the issues addressed in contemporary Latin American film. She is also completely committed to her work with a great deal of diligence, integrity and, above all, absolute professionalism.
Eva Tarr-Kirkhope, London Latin American Film Festival
…attention to detail, excellent communications skills, a great ability to do research around the subject… and great sensitivity to the cultural context and target audience.

Kate has been a great asset to Progressio’s work and I would fully recommend her services. She has been translating and proofreading documents for us from Spanish to English, including interviews (published on our website), newsletters and internal documents, including on monitoring and evaluation, which Kate has knowledge of from her time at Bond. She is highly committed and can be relied on to produce high quality translations to deadline. We are an international development organisation with programmes in Latin America, so Kate translates development terminology and also different types of Spanish, which she has no problem working with. She is very conscious of adhering to our editorial house style.
Georgina Nicoli, Recruitment, Selection and Training Officer at Progressio (NGO)
I worked with Kate at Bond during a period of growth and change, in which we implemented a new approach to strategic communications and built our income generating portfolio. Kate was an integral part of that change and growth, and helped to transform our marketing and communications outputs, from conception to delivery, with high quality copywriting and a strong awareness of the issues of brand and visual identity, across the full range of Bond’s channels, both digital, web and print. With a great capacity to develop and maintain high quality engagement across the range of Bond members, Kate really set in place the core components of a member relations strategy which helped transform the way we did business, and our ability to retain and attract members. On top of that, Kate was always both ultra professional and a delight to work with.
Michael Wright, Director of Communications and Membership at Bond (NGO)
Kate translated some articles for me for an expose report for Global Witness. Her work was quick and she helped out with my follow up questions promptly too. Would recommend.
