7 June 2019
The School of Modern Languages congratulates two of its postgraduate students, Corrine Harries and Claire Storey, who have recently been recognised in the annual ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting) awards.
Corrine Harries was awarded Best Newcomer in the Freelancing category. Claire Storey was specially commended in the same category.
Following a career as a commercial lawyer, Corrine completed her MA in Translation at the University of Bristol in April 2018. Since then Corrine has successfully set up a freelance translation business combined with legal consultancy. In her first six months, she translated over 40,000 words. She has shown considerable commitment to voluntary work, attending industry events and training, being active on social media and interacting with the translation community. Twitter: @ch_translations
Claire is an emerging translator based in Derby working from German and Spanish into English. She is in her final year of a part time MA in Translation Studies at the University of Bristol. She has a particular interest in literary translation and more specifically, children's literature. Her first translated picture book is due for publication in 2019 by Spanish publisher Nube Ocho. Claire is also the Coordinator for her local ITI group, the East Midlands Regional Group, which has been an invaluable asset in her training. Twitter: @ClaireStorey16
