Bonjour!

I'm Amandine Lepers-Thornton, the Franco-British translator behind Amend in Style Translations.

Originally from Lille in Northern France, I first came to the UK in 2002 to study English as an ERASMUS student. I then moved back to France to complete my Bachelors degree, living in Lille and working in Paris until 2003, when I moved to Leeds to work as a French tutor and interpreter. In 2005, I moved to Edinburgh to start my Masters in translation studies. My professional journey as a freelance translator started in 2007, when I set up Amend in Style Translations. After a decade in Scotland, I came to live in Oxford in 2014.

My extensive professional experience as a French linguist includes varied translation and interpreting work, as well as 20 years of teaching at prestigious institutions like Fettes College, the University of Edinburgh and, more recently, Oxford colleges - e.g. Somerville College and St Anne's College. 

In 2021, my passion for plants (I'm a keen allotmenteer) led me to study the RHS Level 2 in Practical Horticulture at Abingdon & Witney College, which I loved so much that I decided to leave academia and start working in horticulture. I've been a part-time gardener (2 days a week) at St Hilda's College since July 2022. This industry experience is an important step of my long-term plan to add horticultural translation to my fields of expertise.
