Indigo English Language Services is run by Helen Spottiswoode, a qualified translator and English teacher. 

Having worked in Sales & Marketing for a global packaging company for over 10 years, and now living in France for the last five, it seemed a natural move to return to my love of languages and start a freelance career based on translation and English teaching.

I am a native British English speaker, from the south of England, currently living near Toulouse.  I have spent periods of time living in France and Spain, and teaching English in these countries.

My international company experience makes me ideally suited to understanding the complexities of the business environment, its requirements, and the need for clarity in communication.



B.A. First Class Joint Honours Degree in French & Spanish from Cardiff University, UK.

Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL), UK.

TESOL English-teaching diploma (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).


Affiliate of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI), UK.
