Samuel Lakin



I gained my BA in French and German from the University of Nottingham in 2016 after spending the previous year as a student in Bremen and Strasbourg. I then completed a Postgraduate Degree in Translation Studies before becoming a Customer Response Operator. After two years of working with clients in various countries, I joined one of the UK’s largest Fleet Telematics companies to assist in shaping their in-house translation department. I joined AST at the end of November 2020, and already feel like part of the family.

One of the most interesting and rewarding aspects of being a translator at AST is the chance to work on a variety of projects from different industries and fields, which means that you never stop learning. Outside of work, my main passions are languages, tennis, and watching my local football team, Mansfield Town.
