Having worked as a full-time commercial native English-speaking copywriter for 20+ years, I'm well adept at writing for multicultural, high pressure environments requiring time management, organization, working with a team or solo, and especially meeting deadlines. Previous job positions have included: Television / Radio (award-winning commercials), advertising agencies and production houses, as well as some journalism in three countries (USA, Great Britain, France).
I have resided in France since 2002 and have worked on a variety of projects and campaigns involving different degrees of French to English translation. My projects have been diverse, from proofing and editing existing English text for French company directors (Paris) to providing full French to English translations for local French government (Saumur) as well as for other companies and advertising agencies in the prestigious Loire Valley directed for the tourism industry.
I have provided translations for subjects such as historic architecture, wine, restaurants and tourist attractions. Existing English proofing and editing topics have included, fashion, a motor vehicle guidebook and music. I have also assisted with Internet projects for online retail sales and Web pages.
Clients have told me that they feel more confident about their text after I have worked on it. Because of my extensive career as a professional commercial copywriter, I am trained to work to a high standard of excellence and my flexible writing skills keep pace with a constantly changing media.
Please feel free to look over my CV and contact me if I can be of assistance to your project or company.
Thank you for your interest.
