Marianne studied French at the University of Wales, Bangor and graduated in 1999. After having lived for some time in France, French Polynesia and Spain teaching English, she returned to Britain to train as an MFL teacher and has enjoyed teaching French at both primary and secondary schools to A level. In 2012 she gained her MA in Translation at the University of Exeter and now specialises in translating Social Sciences and Philosophy academic texts.
