Nathalie Lawson


I am originally from Belgium and was educated mainly there and the Netherlands. I graduated in English and German Philology from the University of Brussels and completed an MA in Interpreting and Translation at the University of Bradford. Following this, I worked as a translator and interpreter for the World Customs Organisation in Brussels, then as a freelance translator and interpreter, working for various British and European organisations. I joined the University of Leeds in 2015 and currently teach French language modules.
