Professional practices Helen Chauveau endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I'm a widely-read, native British/New Zealander with a degree in French and German (languages and literature). Translating literature, recipes and cosmetics copywriting is my passion and I also have nine years experience of translating analytical studies of the global grain and cereal markets, with a focus on Export/Import and consumption of grains by the milling, distilling, brewing, starch, animal feed and biofuels sectors.

My rates are negotiable depending on text and volume.

I travelled widely around Europe as a young woman, and have lived in France for twenty years, therefore my French is near-perfect, although I translate only from French into English, in order to ensure the highest standards.

I am driven by a obsessive desire to correct the errors on all the ill-translated restaurant menus and user manuals which have had the misfortune to cross my path!

I'm married to a Frenchman and we have two bilingual teenagers, thanks to whom I'm extremely up-to-date with French slang, tasteless humour and swear words!
