Professional practices François-Xavier Pâque endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Hello, my name is François-Xavier Pâque.

I am a very dedicated and conscientious hard worker. I work mostly alone to guarantee the coherence of the target translation, but am ready to team up for larger projects should the need arise. I am also very punctual and never missed a deadline.

I have been translating texts professionally, as well as non-professionally, for the past 7 years, though without ever considering becoming a full time translator. I have always got good feedback for the work and service I offered. I specialize in journalism, geopolitics and history but also in the diamond industry, business, economics and finance. I work in many other fields, such as botanics, medicine, I.T., war related industry, etc.

I use Wordfast PRO as a Cat-tool and work under Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
