Welcome to Claire Storey Languages

I am an independent, professional linguist offering translation and tuition services for German and Spanish.

Receiving my Special Commendation from Paul Wilson, Chief Executive of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting

As a freelance translator working from German and Spanish into English, I can help you to convey your message to an English-speaking audience. In 2019, I received Special Commendation from the Institute of Translation and Interpreting in the ITI Award category for Best Newcomer (Freelancing).

I have a keen interest in literary translation, particularly books for children and young adults. I contribute to the World Kid Lit Blog and my work has featured in the Antioch University literary journal, Lunch Ticket .

Having started tutoring in 2009, I am experienced at teaching all age groups, from older adults who are learning for fun to GCSE and A-Level students who need help to pass their exams. More recently, I have realised the joy of teaching Spanish to toddlers. Language learning should be fun and practical and that’s what I aim to provide.

I love books and sharing what I’ve read with others. Have a look at my latest book reviews to see my current recommendations

Claire, we were just having a chat after you left. We just wanted to say a big Thank You. We are enjoying the sessions as much as the children and really appreciate you running them for us.

I have just read through the text and I must say I am delighted with your work. Many, many thanks – the whole thing is so imaginative and inviting; just as I had hoped – and even better.
