Originally a Merchant Navy Officer (Master Mariner and Engineer) and more recently a Senior technical expert for a maritime Administration, I have worked since 2003 as a technical Translator for the International Maritime Organization, the UN Agency specialized in shipping and maritime affairs. I also translated various documents for major French shipowners. 

I hold a Licence d'Anglais (Bachelor's Degree of English) from Université d'Aix (FR). I hold a Master in Maritime Law, from Plymouth University (UK).

My working fields are (English to French):
- shipping industry: from maritime law, seafarers rights, to commercial shipping terms and ships operation. Yacht industry and pleasure crafts
- ships technologies: navigation, life-saving equipment, radiocommunication, fire-fighting equipment, naval architecture, ballast water, ship construction, ships propulsion, quality management
- engineering: mechanical and electromechanical engineering, electricity, diesel engine and boilers
- technologies: foundry and welding technlogies, waste water treatment, handling of dangerous goods,
- marine environment: environmental protection, climate change (CO2, NOx/SOx emissions), pollution management, fisheries, oceanographic research, biofouling
- international conventions and instruments related to safety at sea and seafarers rights
- maritime international laws and regulations, marine insurance, ship brokering, goods at sea.
