About me

"High thoughts must have high language" - Aristophanes

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had two passions: writing and medicine. I first followed the medicine path and obtained a Bachelor in Health Sciences (Nursing), then worked as a staff nurse for 3 years (operating room, emergency room, intensive care unit, medicine/surgery, edoscopy). For the last 5 years, I’ve been working as an in-house translator for a peripherals and connectivity solutions manufacturer, where I translate all marketing collateral, such as product manuals, packaging, advertisements, Website, etc.

I specialise in the translation of various technical documents (medical, pharmaceutical, biological sciences, computers, telecommunications and video games manuals, Education, pedagogy and psychology are also amongst my fields of specialisation. I am part of the official editing team of a magazine about oriental dance, Passion Orientale, for which I translate english into french for the publication of the magazine. FleurdeLys_pen_menu.jpg

Your text needs to be culturally and terminologically appropriate for the Canadian market? As a French Canadian, I can make the text convey your message using the relevant vocabulary and nuances. Furthermore, all my translations for the European French market are read by a European colleague, in order to guarantee the accuracy of the terminology used.


Technical translations (telecommunications, computer science, hardware & software)
Video games (packagings & manuals)
Medical & Pharmaceutical documents, specializing in obstetrics, gyneacology and nutrition
Documents related to crafts (hobbies), such as sewing, quilting, etc.
Education, pedagogy, angragogy, psychology, etc.

Bachelor of Science (Nursing), from Laval University, Québec, Canada
Certificate of Translation, from Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface, Manitoba, Canada
