About my services
I am dedicated to providing a translation service that is responsive, thorough, and confidential. In fifteen years I have never missed a deadline.
Your texts will be translated into elegant and natural English, culturally appropriate and ready for outreach to the English-speaking world.

About me
I grew up in France until I was fourteen but have an English mother. Thus, while my mother tongue is English, I have a French family as well, and am steeped in the French, English and Australian cultures.
German is my third language and was the main subject of my BA at Bristol University, UK. In fact, I also have an adopted German family!
I live in Canberra, Australia, and am certified by NAATI to translate from French and German into English, and interpret between French and English.
My clients include Australian government departments, NGOs, wineries, art magazines and art galleries.
