. Background

A translator and Industrial process engineer (Master of Science), I specialize in scientific and technical translation, from English to French.

Through my formal training as an engineer and my professional experience, I have developed strong skills in various highly technical domains, such as environment, energy, industrial equipment and processes, as well as electronics & optics, which form the basis for my translation activity.

Given my dual skills and experience, the documents translated for my industrial and institutional clients are done so in plain and accurate French, suited for the end user. My projects are carried out while complying with deadline, quality and confidentiality requirements.

A French native, based in the South-West of France, I have been living and working in a French-British bilingual environment for many years.

. Membership

- SFT (Société française des traducteurs)
- INSA Alumni Toulouse (Association des Ingénieurs INSA Toulouse)

. Rates

My rates depend namely on the technical complexity of the document and delivery deadline. Don't hesitate to send me a sample of the document that needs translating, and I will provide you with a quote.

. Invoicing

Like many French freelance translators, I use the services of an umbrella company to manage the administrative aspects of my business, including invoicing.
