Susie Cornish is a freelance technical translator from French and Portuguese with a strong desire to encourage a love of languages in all children, regardless of whether they see themselves as “creative” or “practical”. Her own interest in languages started during a childhood spent living in a number of different countries on various continents and continued with a degree in French and International Studies at the University of Warwick and an MA in Translation at the University of Surrey.
She lives in Somerset with her science-teacher husband and two young sons, and sees the Translators in Schools programme as an ideal way of getting out from behind the computer screen to spread the word about the enrichment and enjoyment that language learning can bring.
