Professional practices Ithaque endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Our diverse range of completed assignments illustrates our ability to adapt to a number of styles and levels, as well as to different readerships. We prefer to maintain communication with our clients to make sure they can be satisfied that the original aims in the text have been reached.
As a British and French team working in tandem, we pride ourselves on the precise interpretation of lexical nuances and cultural references, keeping the essence of the text in tact as it traverses cultures through translation.
Our translations are professional, effective and always delivered on time.

Our Translators:

Sylvaine Pascual : (French) completed her Masters Degree in American Literature which she then used to complete an agrégation d’anglais—the highest level of teaching degree in France. She taught English in French universities for fifteen years and currently holds a seat on the Board of Admissions for the Concours commun de mines Ponts—the competitive exam for a number of prestigious post-graduate institutions. Sylvaine was the Project Manager of translations in a private company for three years before moving on to start Ithaque.
Michael Grantham : (English) completed his Master of Arts and Translation (Major in French) before working as an ESL teacher in Indonesia. His work included business and academic translations as well as producing pedagogical support for lessons in English and Indonesian. He taught Business English in Paris before leaving to focus on full time translation work as well as writing.

La grande variété des missions de traduction qui nous ont été confiées témoignent de notre ouverture à la nouveauté et de notre faculté d’adaptation à des lectorats très divers. En effet nous travaillons en collaboration étroite avec nos clients, de façon à mesurer pleinement les enjeux des missions : contexte culturel et professionnel, lectorat, niveau de langue et style etc.
Par ailleurs, nous avons développé la traduction en tandem afin de prendre en compte toutes les nuances lexicales, conceptuelles et culturelles de la langue de départ et de les rendre avec précision dans la langue cible, ou de les adapter pour une communication optimale, selon la demande du client.
Nos traductions sont professionnelles, efficaces, soignées et élégantes. Nous sommes toujours respectueux des délais impartis.
