Bio

Certificate in Professional Translation (French to English, English to French), Department of Continuing Studies, University of Toronto. 

Fluent in English and French, I have a deep understanding of the source and target cultures (English Canada, England / French Canada and France), which allows me to grasp nuances and produce accurate and natural-sounding translations every time. My background in teaching, editing and government communications has honed my ability to target audiences and condense information into clear, concise language.   


Following my retirement from teaching (French Immersion, Intermediate Level) in 2019, I set to work to build a strong portfolio by translating for non-governmental organizations. I now offer my professional services through ProZ.com for reasonable rates. I am particularly interested in literary translation, am adept at translating subtitles (French to English, English to French) and am familiar with the Amara and Subtitle Edit platforms. The creation and translation of subtitles currently makes up the bulk of my assignments. I am also available to edit and proofread French-to-English and English-to-French translations. My broad professional background has given me a range of tools with which to work, allowing me to adapt to new situations with ease.
