John Barré

English and German to French Translator

Professional translation expert with over 10 years of experience as a registered translator, with a strong focus on marketing and localization.

MA in Translation Studies
Dublin City University, Ireland

BA in Languages Studies (English and German),
Cergy-Pontoise University, France


Passionate about languages, I worked for years in France, Ireland, and Germany to gather the cultural and linguistic knowledge necessary to master the three languages I work with. Over the years, I worked in marketing, localization, and management for several companies in-house while pursuing my activities as a freelance translator.

Thanks to my extensive experience, I have developed a solid understanding of the challenges a company faces when going multilingual, in particular when it comes to addressing a French-speaking audience. More than translating, I strive to get your message across in a way that will appeal to the targeted audience.

I delivered work for start-ups and multinationals listed on the stock exchange alike. The projects I worked on range from a 150,000-word manual on pipe installation for B2B purposes to a 400-word press release sent to all major French media, from the localization of an 85,000-word website with over 20 million weekly visitors worldwide to the translation of a 2,000-word touristic brochure about the charms of Tyrol, Austria.
