Accustomed to a fast-paced environment where organization and a high level of oral, written and interpersonal skills in both French and English are always required, I truly believe I would be an asset to your French > English linguistic projects.
In August 2010 I completed a Master’s degree in Translation and Interpreting (French-English) from Macquarie University, Australia, and am currently living in Montreal, where I am working full-time as a Freelance French to English Life Sciences Translator specializing in handwritten text and dead PDF formats.
Pertinent experiences:
• In addition to being a native speaker of French and English I am also an accredited NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters)Professional Translator (French>English).
• I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Translation from the University of London Institute in Paris and a Master of Arts from New York University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
• My strong organizational and communication skills have proven valuable assets as I have often been called upon to write, translate, edit and localize various documents (reports, briefings, media releases and other correspondence) and serve as interface with international contacts for both non-profit organizations (Corporation Felix Hubert d’Hérelle; Initiatives of Change) and private companies (Mercuri Urval, Ralph Lauren, Disney, Sipa Press, PR Week).
• I have repeatedly contributed to fine-tuning translations and juggling multiple projects. For instance, I managed the dubbing projects at Disney from A to Z dealing with translators, clients, actors and studios. While at Sipa Press I reviewed all texts written or translated by other parties. In every position I have held in the past I have always gone the extra mile to make sure that the final product was of the highest quality.
• I am a team player with solid work ethics and versatility to work across functional areas, cultures and different job levels…Enthusiasm… Ability to react quickly to any given situation… are but a few of the other skills I can promise you.
