My name is Penny Langton and I am Firm Forward’s translator. I work predominantly from Spanish and French to English and specialize in law. I have a degree in modern languages, with a focus on translation and interpreting; post-graduate diplomas in translation (Dip Trans) and public service interpreting (DPSI); and I have been a Qualified Member of the Institute of Translators and Interpreters (ITI) for over 20 years. This status allows me to certify translations for submission to UK government agencies. I was part of the in-house translation team at Diageo for some time before broadening my portfolio of direct clients; these have included UK government departments such as the Criminal Records Office and Customs & Revenue, as well as law firms in Spain, France, Latin America, the UK and the US.
I live in London with my family, close to the river Thames which makes it easy for me to indulge in my passion for mud-larking!
