Professional practices David Gay-Perret endorses's Professional Guidelines.

My name's David Gay-Perret, a Frenchman from the Alps who's been living in Sweden since summer 2009. My international background also includes a study period in South-Korea and regular work with people from all over the world (on top of a Chinese family-in-law!), and so it's no surprise that I have an interest in foreign languages and cultures (or perhaps it is that interest that led me down an international path?)!

I started my own business at the end of 2013, first as a French teacher at Volvo, then gradually expanding to include all sorts of services: interpretation, translation, proofreading, copywriting, cross-cultural education, consulting... even voice-over/dubbing performances!

I've also led several projects (some of them in the field of localization), and I'm eager to continue making use of my skills in organization, communication and leadership to manage projects, operations, teams, etc.

Another key aspect of my profile is my interest & background in the creative world: I've already mentioned voice-over/dubbing work, but I could add experience writing, publishing & distributing a book, composing and producing music, translating scripts and other creative content, interpreting during the shooting of a documentary, directing 2 short films, among other things.

And so, although my skills can be used in many different industries, I truly enjoy the creative world and would love to find assignments there (may it be the audiovisual field where I already have some experience, or something else such as video-games, comics, board games...). I believe the combination of my artistic sensibility & creativity along with my business-like discipline and structure give me an edge in this field, may it be leading teams of creative people (need to speak their language and yet stay focused on the goals, keep track of budgets, etc.), translating/proofreading creative content (understanding/feeling the message to get the same result in another language), writing scripts with the end audience in mind (putting myself "in their shoes" to use the right tone and words), or any other kinds of assignments our there.

If my profile caught your interest then please get in touch and we'll discuss how I can help!
