My name is Laurence Dana. I am a professional freelance translator and consultant based in London in the United Kingdom. I provide translation services to both end clients and language service providers in English and French.
I specialise in translations in the fields of Finance, Economics and Business drawing on the skills and expertise developed in the course of my previous career as a trader and portfolio manager. Through my translation experience and additional training, I have also developed specialisations in Insurance and Law.
My consulting services relate to the Finance industry: Clients can rely on me for tasks such as document production and project management, tailored to their specific needs.
