A student looking to learn through practice.
I have completed a BA and a BA Hons degree in Language Practice. Both of these courses focused strongly on Translation (my personal preference is Afrikaans to English), Editing, Proofreading, and Audio-Visual Translation. I am now working on a MA degree which looks at Subtitles in Educational Contexts, seeking to provide a more effective form of subtitled educational video for supplemental learning in South African universities. I am completing my MA as a part-time student due to time constraints placed on the timeline for data collection. I also work as a part-time lecturer for my university to earn a small (but not quite secure or livable) income - I teach in the field of Academic Literacy, ensuring that first year students are equipped with the language skills necessary to survive their degrees.
I would like to start practicing within the field of my qualifications to secure a more livable income. I love editing texts, and creating subtitles for any type of video content.
