Professional practices Gilles Wandel endorses's Professional Guidelines.

The expertise I offer is built on

My EXPERIENCE in translating marketing, entertainment and general contents, as well as literary and art-related texts or any document requiring a creative translator.

My EDUCATION at the Université Libre de Bruxelles where I earned a master's degree in translation and translated various types of content daily before starting my professional activity. Furthermore, I am currently taking classes to become a sworn translator.

My INTEREST in the subject of the translations I provide. Knowledge of the field is essential.

As a translator,

I translate not only words but styles, intentions and ideas. This is crucial in marketing and literary translation.

I believe every language has its own melody and I make a point of reproducing its natural flow.

As a professional, I am

Rigorous: creativity does not mean lack of precision. When a specific terminology is to be used, I stick to it.

Willing to meet my clients' expectations.
