After completing a degree in Modern Language Studies (French, German and English) at Leicester University and post-graduate secretarial qualifications for linguists at Aberdeen College of Commerce, Gabrielle spent six years working for various companies in Paris. On her return to the UK, she began teaching children and adults through Adult Education and enjoyed the creative aspect of inventing courses tailored to various age-ranges and levels of competence. She taught for many years in both the private and the state sectors, as well as in Adult Education and then decided to take on a new career as a translator. Gabrielle has just completed an MA in Translation at Exeter University and is now involved in various translating and teaching projects. The Translators in Schools project, in particular, combines both of these interests and gives scope to explore translation in a creative way.
