The WMG will miss Anne Hulme


Anne Hulme was an active member of both the WMG and the NWTN for whom she set up the first website - she was a formidable technician even in the early days of CAT tools etc. Highly regarded as a technical translator from German and French into English, her soft spoken, unassuming manner belied her respected authority as a translator. Moreover, Anne was always ready to use her wealth of translation knowledge and experience to help new translators, by whom she will be remembered as an unusually sympathetic and supportive source of advice and encouragement.

In her personal life, Anne was a keen walker and cyclist who not only completed cycling feats few of us could aspire to, but achieved the kind of healthy work-life balance most of us long for. She was, above all, a thoughtful, perceptive and kind person with a gentle, but lively sense of humour at the right moments.

Anne was all these things to those of us who were fortunate enough to know her during her lifetime and lives on as such in our memories of her.
