About me
I am a French-born Professional who has been living in the United States for over nine years. In addition to working with French, English, and Portuguese fluently, I also possess a strong command of Spanish as well.
After changing my Master in Communication to English Literature, I became a freelance translator and interpreter.
I believe that growing up in a bilingual environment and studying the theories of Communication and Literature help me in my work, since I am able to not only translate the words accurately, but also the context of the document.

QUALIFICATIONS
I have been working on an almost daily-basis with a British agency (ProZ member) for the past four years and I have been able to translate a wide range of projects in several fields, with sometimes a very short deadline, which has sharpened my translation skills and my ability to manage new projects.

Some of my most recent completed projects include:
- Legal documents;
- Repertory and brochure for the British Red Cross;
- Transcript and translation of four reels of interviews for a documentary in the making;
- Technical manuals and brochures;
- Business presentations;
- Websites;
- News articles.
