Lighter Side of Translation and Interpretation
Poetry & Literature
Translation in Canada
Nancy Lynn Hancock is a translator and language instructor based in Bécancour, Québec. Her languages are English and Canadian French.
Nancy is a member of the simultaneous interpretation team for the leading Canadian television news channel, and in this capacity was one of two interpreters to cover the 2008 and the 2011 federal election campaigns in Canada
Live events keep her busy every week, including press conferences, speeches and state visits by such guests as Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and President Sarkozy. Most recently she interpreted the French parts of the speeches given by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, on his honeymoon trip to Canada.
She also interpreted live coverage of the Vancouver Olympic Games,
including the conferences leading up to the great event. Bittersweet memories...
Regular main events include the Speech from the Throne, Canada Day events
and the Remembrance Day Ceremony
Her specializations in translation include handwritten patient charts, medical questionnaires and consent forms, menus, cookbooks, tourism, agrofood, nutrition, food labels, food chemistry, and of course Canadian politics and current events.
A particular interest is cookbooks; in 2008, Nancy translated À la di Stasio, a book based on a popular cooking show in Quebec. Three other full-length cookbooks by other authors soon followed.
