I am a French native EN > FR translator-reviewer-proofreader with more than 20 years experience as a freelancer.

Specialty fields:
IT and software, engineering, railways, nuclear energy, building information modeling (BIM), food processing industry, contracts, employees' training, lean manufacturing/Busines Process Improvement, institutional and NGOs.

Translated document types:
Software help, product catalogs, product presentations, user's guides and operating instructions, newsletters, press releases, business contracts, EULAs, training courses, EU decisions, EU working group meeting minutes, European Commission decisions, UN and EU related reports, NGO information magazines.

I have participated in a major multilingual terminology project on the irradiation of food which was published by INRA Edition in 1998 (see Publications in my LinkedIn profile below).

I have also translated various practical, personal development and humour books for French publishing houses, especially on food processing subjects.
I translated very recently a most famous book by multitalented and maverick musician and creator Frank Zappa called "Them or Us", published in Sept. 2018 by "La Rue Musicale", the publishing house for the "Cité de la Musique/Philhamonie de Paris".

As a professional, I am strongly committed to the following:

Language/writing quality for perfect target language fluency
Addressing consistency, terminology or technical issues early in project
Respecting deadlines and client style and terminology preferences

I offer my clients a forward-looking and reactive service to provide them with timely, reliable translations that match their needs.
