Siân Thomas is a freelance translator working from Dutch and German into English. She also provides proof-reading and editing services to authors whose first language is not English. While studying at Sheffield University, she spent a year working abroad across Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, before returning to England to work as an in-house translator for various companies. 

The varied nature of Siân’s work gives her the chance to explore not only the intricacies and nuances of different languages, but also the culture and current affairs in different countries. 

As a newcomer to the freelance life, Union St offers her a place not only to work, but also a community of other self-employed professionals to connect with. 

She is happy to offer Union St members a 25% discount on translation rates, as well as half price language tuition for start-ups.

As a translator you never know what that day’s challenges will be, and you end up discovering and doing in-depth research on such a wide range of topics. I find it very rewarding to finish a project knowing so much more than I did before about a particular subject.
