About me
Full-time French to English translator with 6+ years’ experience providing publication-ready translations that read like native texts in the fields of corporate communications, international development and marketing.

Some of my recent projects include an online children’s scientific dictionary, a training manual on gender issues for a UN entity, press releases for a development bank and customer satisfaction surveys for a marketing agency.

I am a certified member of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters and a member of the ITI. I have an M.A. in Translation with distinction from the London Metropolitan University (UK), an M.A. in Tourism Management from the Université de Bourgogne (France) and a B.A. Honours in Applied Language Studies (English, French and German) from the Université de Bourgogne and FASK Germersheim (Germany) with merit. After 16 years spent living and working in London in the UK, I now live in Auckland, New Zealand, and can provide overnight translations to European and American clients.

I currently serve as the Secretary of the Auckland branch of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters and as the coordinator of the ITI International Network.
