Welcome to Culture Translation

French & Italian into English Translation, Editing & Proofreading for Art History & Sport

About me

My name is Laura Bennett
and I am a freelance professional translator working from French and Italian into English.

I provide a high-quality, friendly service offering the perfect combination of language skills, expert knowledge, professional commitment and cultural understanding.

The majority of my work falls within my two specialist areas of art history and sport.

This may seem like an unusual combination, but my academic background and love of art history is equalled only by my lifelong passion for the world of sport. Working primarily within these niches allows me to bring a high level of expertise to my translation of texts in these fields.

I also provide editing and proofreading services.
