The French Translation

Philippe Salmon has been a French technical translator for 30 years and so has a vast understanding of technical and engineering processes in aeronautics, automotive, steel, gas, oil, environmental issues and associated training programmes. All this makes for interesting dinner party conversation and success in local quiz teams! Philippe holds the Institute of Linguists Post-Graduate Diploma in Translation with Merit for Technical translation and also regularly uses his language skills to make groan-inducing puns and jokes. He has never been seen in a beret, a striped T-shirt or with a string of onions around his neck.

Cheryl Salmon has 30 years' experience in education and training at a senior level. She has an MA in Applied Sociology and has completed further studies in positive psychology.
