With more than 20 years' experience, the translations I provide for my clients do not read like translations, but like originals. Why? Simply because I accept jobs in fields of which I have professional experience and/or in which I have a university qualification, often both.

University educated to degree-level in the UK and in France, I have expertise in the fields of law, neuroscience, psychology and terrorism/political violence.
