Reliability, flexibility & accuracy
I am a native French speaker and have been living/working in an English-speaking environment for the past 35 years, and therefore I have an excellent knowledge of both languages.
I live in France and have been working as a freelance translator, providing translation, transcription, localization and proofreading services since Jan 2008.
I hold an Engineering degree and have over 27 years of technical and marketing experience in a multinational telecommunication company.
Throughout my career I was permanently led to translate, author, copyedit and proofread marketing and technical documents, user guides, installation guides, maintenance manuals, technical specifications, tenders, presentations, brochures, campaigns, press releases and telemarketing letters.
I am flexible on rates and always come to a suitable agreement with my clients.
I provide very fast turnabout, while always maintaining work of the highest quality.
