Professional background:
I worked in the field of marketing and Public Relations for over ten years, during which time I acquired in-depth knowledge of marketing and business terminology in both English and French. I worked on various multilingual projects and translated many documents in the course of my work, including press releases, business correspondence, invoices, brochures etc.

My offer:
I am hardworking and reliable; you will find that I reply promptly and am easy to work with. I also offer transcreation services including the adaptation of slogans taglines, in-store displays etc. I always pride myself on not just conveying the meaning of the original message but also on finding the right mood, nuances and tones.
My rates:
Rates vary according to the nature of the text and its length.
