Leah Hunt

Translation Team Lead


I come from a very linguistically minded family and language is something that has always intrigued me. After studying German and Spanish at school, I went on to complete my bachelor’s degree in German and Translation Studies at Aston University in 2009. I spent the third year of my course working as a language assistant in a secondary school near Cologne. Living with a local family during my time there improved my German immensely, and we are still in touch to this day.
After graduating, I spent a couple of years working in various customer service roles before finally taking the plunge and launching my career as a freelance translator in late 2012.
Over my eight years in the industry, I have translated a wide variety of texts for a range of clients and gained a wealth of valuable experience that I hope to bring to my new in-house role at AST starting in January 2021.
