Lynn Everson, Managing Director

Both MITI and MCIL (Full Member of both the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and of the Chartered Institute of Linguists) Lynn is a highly-respected professional Spanish and French linguist. She’s also a former Director of the UK Association of Translation Companies, a role in which she guided policy and practice in the translation industry. Lynn holds an MA in Translation Studies and BA Modern Languages.

Lynn spent 6 years working in fruit importing and then in haulage and logistics, where her language skills were in demand sorting-out loads (and drivers) all over Europe. In 1990, recognising the haulage industry’s need for emergency language services (hence the company name) Lynn founded Lifeline in her back room with a phone, typewriter (remember those?) and a fax machine. Since then she’s never looked back, growing the business today to a team of 12 in classy offices in Preston city centre.

Not content with merely running a successful language company, Lynn is also a Past National President of Business and Professional Women UK and sits on the Committee of WACUNA, the UN Association’s Women’s Advisory Council.
