About me
Specialized in technical business translation as opposed to literary translation, I have a strong expertise in tax and corporate law, accounting and finance (10 year+ experience including 8 years at the Ministry of finances in a legal financial executive role). I can handle large and complex projects requiring a deep understanding of the subject matter.

In 2015, I 've passed the entrance examination to the master2 in specialized translation from Paris 7 University (translation tests with a pen, in a closed environment, with a very restricted time limit, no dictionaries allowed)

Updated English CV upon request
References by language pair and by field of specialization upon request
My rates are dependent on the field of specialization, language pair, deadline ...

Layout is not within the scope of my activity, which is limited to translation. However, I like working with OCR files (which preserve the original format).

My rates for translation do not include the proofreading which must be carried out
separately by a proofreader, this proofreading being necessary especially if tight deadlines are imposed, nor do they include the proofreading of the proofreader's job.
I do not accept to proofread MT output.

tax law (transfer prices....), business law (competition law, trademark and patent infringement, contracts, general terms and conditions, financial law, employment law...), medical law (patient decree), accounting, finance, equities, asset management, economics, HR, management, marketing, market studies
agriculture, food processing, agribusiness, environment, clean techs, sustainable development, public policies, public health, environmental issues, politics, history
