CV Example With Language Skills
A fully qualified interpreter, I am an experienced public sector officer used to dealing with both local and national government. As well as my long-standing role as an interpreter of Welsh and English, I am fluent in French and Italian and undertake freelance translation work in both of these languages. Having been brought up in South Wales and France, I am confident with English, Welsh and French as native languages. In addition, I undertook a postgraduate course in Italy to learn that language. Furthermore, I have a good working knowledge of several other European languages, notably German and Spanish. I am used to the demands of interpreting in a governmental environment including all of the necessary security and non-disclosure procedures that surround some of the more sensitive areas of discussion that come up. I am now seeking a private sector role in which I can put all of my linguistic skills to good use and further my career.
