Bio

Born and raised in France, I left for Austria right after graduation, where I spent ten years and got a Master's degree in translation. I started working full-time as a freelancer in 2016. I've gained experience in several areas, mainly technical, agriculture and marketing.

I'm passionate about politics, social issues (especially gender: I wrote my master's thesis on gender-inclusive language use in French-speaking countries) and the environment, so I give as much time as I can do some volunteer translation work for NGOs and independent media. I'm also a musician, and, like so many of my colleague, a true bookworm.

I would say my greatest quality as a translator is to recognize what a translation needs and focus on making it work, but I'm happiest when I can spend a ridiculous amount of time on one sentence until it sounds just right;)
