Profile

With a PhD in Modern Welsh and Irish, and 30 years professional experience, David is one of the most experienced Welsh translators. He was head of translation at the Welsh Office and deputy head of translation at the National Assembly for Wales. He has been working freelance since 2001 and clients include Welsh Government departments, UK Government departments, higher education institutions and translation agencies.

David has been an examiner for Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru’s Examination Board and is chair of its Membership and Professional Standards Committee. He is a member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting.

David has contributed to translation studies at Cardiff University School of Welsh, the Centre for Continuing Education, University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and at the Department of Welsh, University of Wales, Lampeter. He was external examiner for the Certificate in Translation, Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities, 2008-2012.

"The Commissioner has used Cwmni DB’s services for the translation of correspondence and legal documents since 2009 and has found that David Bullock’s knowledge of the legislation engenders confidence that his translations are to the highest standard possible. The timely manner in which David turns around documents ensures that we do not fail to meet our own service standards when corresponding through the medium of Welsh. David maintains good contact with his clients and no concerns questioning the quality of a translation from Cwmni DB have ever been received by the Commissioner from a member of the public or a stakeholder. For those reasons, it is a pleasure to recommend Cwmni DB’s services."
