With 7 years of full-time professional translation experience and two decades of teaching French Literature and Language at the secondary and post-secondary level, I bring a lifetime of working knowledge to the task of translating for all types of clients. Combined with nearly two decades experience in business and involvement on non-profit boards, I am able to offer clients translating services based on a thorough understanding of the parameters and pressures in the business, academic and non-profit sectors. As part of a bi-lingual household (my wife is a French citizen) and having spent several years of accumulated time living in France and Francophone West Africa (Peace Corps volunteer), my understanding of the subtleties and nuances of the French language will certainly benefit your translated documents.
