About me

I am a native English speaker, who is fluent in French.
I have been working in bilingual and translation roles for the past 10 years.
I am also a Canadian certified French teacher! I have been teaching French for the past 4 and half years.

Bachelor of Arts, Major in French, Minor in Psychology
Bachelor of Education, specialization in French language

A little history:
My B.A. in French focussed on Literature and Translation, including a one-year intensive translation course.
Through completion of upper level university courses in English, French, and Translation, as well as my work experience in both languages, I have developed a very clear, accurate and stylized level of translation.

More about me:
I have lived and worked in France, Quebec and the bilingual city of Ottawa. In each of these locations I worked in completely bilingual settings (French and English), performing translation, writing and language teaching services.

I genuinely enjoy translating and writing in both languages. It’s a rewarding challenge finding the right words and expressions to communicate an exact meaning into another language. I have done translations in the fields of education, humanities, history, fine arts, literature, and business correspondence (private and government), to name a few.

As a translator or proof-reader I offer:
•Meticulous work, with utmost attention to detail
•Clear and accurate work that conveys the exact meaning and feel of the original piece
•Clear and reliable communication
•Reasonable and flexible rates

I am looking forward to hearing from you about any project that you may need help with.
