Bio
With an MA in Comparative Literature from the Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris) and a Doctorate in English from the University of Oxford (UK), I am an experienced translator, writer, journalist and copywriter with a particular expertise in French to English translation. I am originally from the US, but have lived in the UK for over five years and am thoroughly comfortable working in British English as well as American.

Co-founder of WordTailors, a company offering translation, writing, and professional voiceover services to individuals and organizations, I guarantee the utmost in professionalism, efficiency, courtesy, speed and accuracy. Having been trained as a professional translator during my time as an Editorial Assistant for language methods company Auralog (France), I am familiar with Trados and various CMS systems. I am also a professional journalist who has translated dozens of news stories from French to English, for outlets including the Associated Press, Reed Business Information, and Radio France Internationale.

In addition to news reports, I have translated everything from internal and external reports, professional presentations, fictional scripts, grant proposals, marketing content, and website pages for both companies and NGOs.

Some of my main areas of expertise include the following:

  • Business and finance
  • Website content (including SEO techniques)
  • Science, engineering and technology
  • General news/politics/culture
  • Travel and culture (particularly France and French culture)
  • Government/administrative documents
  • Education and pedagogy
  • Social sciences (Sociology, Psychology...)
  • Literary, arts and culture
  • Literary theory
