Living and working in Paris, I am currently a translator at DigitalVersus, where I adapt reviews of consumer electronics products from French to English. I am also available for freelance translation work and offer various other language services.
Having gained an MA in Translation, I am well aware that a good translation needs to not only render the information provided in the source text but also to act as a native target-language document. With this is mind, I have honed my skills in various subject domains across a number of text types — journalistic, administrative, technical and literary. With a naturally inquisitive mind and a vast arsenal of research techniques, I am capable of translating most subjects.
Of course, I have more experience in certain domains than others; my current role has given me an extensive knowledge of the consumer electronics industry, most notably regarding laptops, smartphones, televisions, computer monitors, tablets and digital cameras. You may also be interested to hear that I’ve worked for the Ice Climbing World Cup, translating welcomes guides, for both visitors and competitors, as well as information about the event’s green credentials and environmental sustainability plan. This work was inspired by a love of mountaineering, and I have also translated a large section of a rock-climbing guidebook (MA project). I have equally worked on projects as diverse as samples of literary texts (MA project) and hotel terms and conditions.
