Looking for a professional, accurate, and eminently readable translation at a good rate? Then look no further.

I am a French-English translator specialising in: educational texts, diplomas, and certificates; environment, energy, and ecology; website translation; manufacturing; academic and thesis translation (especially in mathematics, humanities, linguistics, and history); and literature of all kinds.

I am a native UK English speaker with an in-depth knowledge of French, having lived and travelled there extensively.

I have a real love of language and a great eye for detail, and I write with fluency and clarity.

In addition, I can also provide excellent proofreading, editing, copywriting, audio transcription, and phonetic or phonemic transcription services.


I have an MA in Applied Translation Studies (French-English) from the University of Leeds and a BA in French (literature, linguistics, and language) from the University of Oxford (with first-class honours).

My studies brought me into contact with a wide range of text types, including technical, scientific, literary, academic, and administrative.

Work Experience

My recent translation work has included: a 15,000-word text on the history of mathematics; fire safety certification; medical thesis abstracts; company websites; and over 5,000 words of literature and theatre documentation. I have also edited the closing speech of a Chinese renewable energy company conference and promotional texts for a company selling LED lights.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
