Brigitte Peach (Languages for Life Ltd.)
We help you grow your business globally! Now the proud 'owner/holder' of the ISO9001-2008 certificate - we do not just say we are good, we have evidence to proof it.
Languages for Life Ltd. offer all types of translations in all areas (e.g. legal, technical, literature, certificates, website localisation, etc.) for most languages, all types of interpreting including telephone and Skype interpreting and also private and corporate language tuition. We are getting very busy in translating video transcripts and voice-over assignments.
We offer One-to-One tuition, language training in small and medium sized groups and tuition via Skype, allowing more flexibility for our customers. Nobody has to miss out on his/her tuition, just because s/he travels a lot - meet with your tutor via Skype whilst you are away or choose a complete course using this technology.
Translators work only into their mother tongue and translators and interpreters only in their areas of expertise. All linguists are qualified and the majority of our language experts are members of a professional body.
We work with private customers, SMEs and large companies. No job too small or too large.
My name is Brigitte Peach PGCE MCIL, founder and owner of the language agency Languages for Life Ltd.
Until the birth of my son I worked in Germany for many years as a Quantity Surveyor in a bi-lingual environment. As I am the least likely housewife (my mother often wonders where my German upbringing went wrong) but a passionate mother who did not want to hand over her child and later children over to a child minder, I decided to utilise my technical language skills and started as a freelance translator and interpreter, being able to combine motherhood and professional life.
A few years later I qualified with the now Chartered Institute of Linguists, joined the Institute and have been a member since 1995. A few years later I slithered into language tuition and discovered my love for this type of work. Language tuition is fun nowadays, lots of games and activities, rather than just working through a book. Initially I trained to teach Foreign Languages to Adults whilst I was working for various language tuition agencies and colleges. Later I ventured into the life of a secondary school teacher after qualifying at The University of Sheffield. I worked for five years as a full-time teacher in a school in Lincoln, adding new skills to my portfolio.
In 2007 I decided to form a company in order to combine the skills I had obtained over the past few decades. Although running and building up a company is hard work, my professional development is ongoing, which is very satisfying but above all fun.
