John is a Translator for the European Commission
John studied French and Spanish at Cardiff University, and spent his year abroad studying at Valencia University, Spain, and working as a waiter at Disneyland Paris. He is now a Translator for the European Commission, the organisation which represents the interests of the EU as a whole.
The European Commission proposes new legislation to the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, and it ensures that EU law is correctly applied by member countries.
The Language Launchpad videos have been created through our partnership with The European Commission in order to interview UK language graduates and discover how their language skills have benefitted their careers.
