I am a passionate linguist with academic interests in multilingualism and third language acquisition. I love to facilitate communication through translation . I have worked as a  diplomat with postings in Vietnam, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia, tutored in  French and English, written for a number of small publications, produced numerous media transcripts and worked as a proof-reader and dictionary editor. I speak English, French, Vietnamese and Solomon Islands Pijin, with a sprinkling of Spanish, Indonesian, Welsh and German. I am a dual Australian/French national with a French husband and two dual national, bilingual children. I have lived in France and currently call Tasmania, Australia, home.

Through my small company Words Tasmania, created in 2012, I deliver translation and other linguistics services, including editing, proof reading, copy writing and language tutoring. My clients include the general public, business and not-for-profit organisations. I work across a range of fields including international relations, trade and development, politics and government, personal and legal, educational, financial, maritime and sailing, environmental and scientific, literature and the arts.I look forward to seeking out the right words to help you.
