Professional practices Catharine Cellier-Smart endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I'm an experienced professional French to English sworn translator and talented linguist, with experience in a number of fields of expertise. I also specialise in Reunion Island Creole, and I'm native in British English.

I'm a native of London, England, and am now based on Reunion Island, in the south-west Indian Ocean. I also lived and travelled for three years in Asia, from 2008-2011.

Holder of an MBA from the IAE (Business School) of the University of Réunion, I have twenty years experience in the world of business, but have always translated professionally while working at the same time. Since 2008 freelance translation has been a full-time second career.

I'm a member of the SFT (French National Translators’ Association) and UNETICA (French Union of Court-Sworn Translators and Interpreters).
I use Wordfast Pro CAT tool for my translations.
I'm also available for interpreting, transcriptions, proofreading and US>UK localisation. However don’t hesitate to contact me for any type of language-related project.

You can read my blog about language and translation here.
