Source text - English When I turned on my computer today, I had 7 emails from vendors announcing special low prices – Black Friday deals – available all week. The biggest discounts advertised were on electronics, which wasn’t a surprise since November is considered “electronics buying month” within the retail industry. I waded through the Black Friday junk mail, tapping away at my delete button, to find the one email I sought: the message from my neighbor with the menu, schedule and guest list for this Thursday’s Thanksgiving gathering.
Translation - French En allumant mon ordinateur aujourd'hui, j'avais reçu 7 courriels venant de vendeurs m'annonçant des prix cassés – les offres du Vendredi Noir – disponibles toute la semaine. Les plus grosses réductions étaient offertes sur l'électronique. Le mois de novembre étant considéré comme « le mois des achats électroniques » dans le commerce de détail, je n'en fus pas surprise. Je parcourus les annonces du Vendredi Noir, tapotant sur ma touche « effacer », jusqu'à trouver le courriel précis que je recherchais : un message de mon voisin comportant le menu, l'horaire et la liste des invités pour la fête de Thanksgiving de ce jeudi.

Born and raised in France, I have always had a passion for languages and writing. I have studied translation in both French and Canadian universities, allowing me to master the art of translating to European as well as Canadian French, two equally important markets.
A lover of the road less traveled, I have worked in Nizhnij Novgorod, Russia, as a lecturer and translator in a linguistic university. Before becoming a full-time freelance translator, I have also worked as a U.N. correspondent for an American press agency in New York City, perfecting my writing skills and receiving invaluable experience in an international work environment.
Among others, I have also worked as a communications director and translator on a major political campaign in Canada and as a photographer for a travel agency in Chicago and Miami.
Today, I am here to help you with your translation needs in a timely, reliable & professional manner!
I am at ease in most subjects, due to my diverse professional experience. I have translated many types of documents, ranging from energy drink descriptions to furniture catalogs or political speeches.
I also particularly enjoy translating documents related to sports, photography, journalism, and cheese (!).
