About Kett Translations

My name is Lisa Kett and I am a qualified freelance translator from Spanish, German and French into English. As a native-English speaker based in Dorset, I provide high-quality translation and proofreading services for local, national and international clients.  

I specialise in technical, educational and marketing documents. Areas of expertise include translating websites and marketing materials for technical as well as innovative products and translating technical manuals for the aerospace and mechanical engineering industries. I also provide copywriting services.

I hold an MA in Translation, at Distinction level, and I am an affiliate of the ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting).

Communicating in another language is more than just translating a text word by word. I ensure that the style and register of the translation enables your message to be successfully communicated to your target audience. I have a keen eye for detail and I produce clear and effective translations that meet clients’ needs and deadlines.
