BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

Kitty studied French and Italian at the University of York before continuing her studies in translation at the University of Leeds. During her undergraduate degree, she had the opportunity to take a year abroad and spent a semester in Italy then in France, which unfortunately got cut short due to the pandemic. However, this is where she got her first taste of translation – a translation theory module in Italy as well as a French to Italian translation module in France – and the passion grew from there.

During her studies, Kitty has translated material from a large range of fields in order to get as much experience as possible, these include academic, technical, legal, journalism, and literature. But she is mostly interested in marketing translations, commercial translations, and translating journalistic-style texts. She also has experience in intralingual subtitling.

Alongside her work and studies, Kitty has completed volunteer translations for Translators Without Borders and intends to continue to do so in the future.

LANGUAGE LOVES & LOATHES

Language Love:

“Untranslatable words. I finds these fascinating and have come across so many interesting words from across the world that don’t have an English translation. Head to our instagram to see some examples – @leaftranslations.”

Language Loathe:

“The incorrect use of the past tense. Especially past participles and saying ‘could of’ instead of ‘could have’, I always finds myself correcting family and friends (which they don’t seem to like)!”
