Lodestar Translations is the partnership of Paul Clarke and Charlotte Couchman, click here to download our curriculum vitae.
Each of us has over 20 years experience: Paul has worked as an abstractor for an online information service, as a staff translator both for the UK Civil Service (Department of the Environment/ Department of Transport) in London and for ICI Chemicals & Polymers Ltd. at their Wilton site in North East England and, finally, after nine years of staff experience, as a freelance translator since 1993, while Charlotte has gathered her wide-ranging experience of technical and patents translation working entirely as a freelance, mainly directly for patent attorneys in private practice in subject areas covering mechanical engineering, materials testing, process equipment and biomedical devices.
Both partners are fully qualified individual members (MITI) of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting and associate members of the Chartered Institute of Patent Agents. We are active members of the Yorkshire regional group of the ITI and of the ITI’s French Network, the Science, Technology, Engineering & Patents Network and the Medical Network, where we both provide and receive professional support.
