Bio

    I have been translating documents for the past three years and have found a special interest in literary documents (fiction: novels, shortstories, novellas, etc, as well as non-fiction: documentaries, autobiographies, newspaper articles, blog posts, etc...). I also have some experience subtitling videos - as I have subtitled my own Youtube videos as well as helping with subtitles on one of the play I worked on during my time at Toulouse Jean Jaurès. I was especially involved with adapting the play into subtitles rather than the technological aspect of it.

     I have also had experience translating personal documents, such as letters, e-mails, Powerpoints, résumés and motivation letters, etc. I work as a freelance translator and have so far only worked for private customers.
I have put a special focus during my classes at UCK on studying more literary translation techniques and theories, as well as exploring different styles and genres - religious texts, educational documents, poetry, plays, children's literature, etc - through my Translation in History and Translating Literary Culture Modules.
My course on technologies has made me abled to use WordFast Anywhere and I am also learning to use Strados. Finally, I was also trained during my time at UCL in Crisis Translation, an area that I loved to explore and would love to work more in. I very recently finished school and handed in a dissertation on the difficulties of translating folklore in children's literature. 

     In the meantime, I can fully use Excel, Word, Powerpoint, amongst other basic softwares. When it comes to subtitling, I am happy to use Lightworks, Windows Movie Maker or the Youtube tool, depending on your needs and requests.   

    Although it is not my specialty, I also occasionally practice technical translation - linked to legal, medical and technological documents for example, as well as tourism or entertainment pieces.
