About me
many years in IT, now a translator

I am French; my communication and orthographic styles in French are excellent. I am an English to French free-lance translator; I live in Paris.

I am a scientist. In a previous life, I was an IT engineer in a large international computer company; later I was a product manager in the same company, I was specialized in software. In this context, I spent two years in the U.S. (professional assignments). I had the opportunity to author / translate several documents such as business plans, call for tender, tutorials, White Papers, case studies, brochures, press releases..in both languages. As a product manager I was in charge of marketing, promotion, pricing for my product line (databases then system management).

Credentials: MS/Mathematics (DEA Bac+ 5)

As a translator - strictly speaking -, my experience began with several articles (social sciences, economics, international politic) voluntary translated (1 year) while learning to become a translator.

I am now a professional translator.
