To whom it may concern:
Louise Normandin worked for us for a year as a free-lance technical translator of English into French.
Her main assignment was to translate the bi-monthly “World Immunization Newsletter” sponsored by the World Health Organization, a task she performed admirably.
Her translations were performed very conscientiously, with a great deal of research done on technical terminology and a lot of care taken in assuring accuracy. Louise can transform a rather dull or poorly written English document into elegant French prose which reads beautifully but retains all the important elements of the original.
As her supervisor and editor, I can say that it was a great pleasure working with Louise and that she would be an asset to any firm that hires her to perform translations.

Louise Normandin a travaillé pour nous pendant un an en tant que traductrice technique indépendante de l'anglais vers le français.
Sa principale responsabilité était de traduire le « Bulletin mondial de la vaccination » parrainé par l'Organisation mondiale de la santé et publié tous les deux mois, une tâche dont elle s’acquittait admirablement.
Ses traductions étaient impeccables et faisant preuve d’une recherche méticuleuse de la terminologie technique et de beaucoup de soin pour assurer l'exactitude. Louise peut transformer un document anglais plutôt terne ou mal écrit en une prose élégante qui se lit magnifiquement en français mais conserve tous les éléments importants de l'original.
En tant que réviseure et superviseure, je peux dire que c’était un réel plaisir de travailler avec Louise et qu'elle serait un atout pour toute entreprise qui l'embaucherait pour effectuer des traductions.
Veuillez agréer, Madame, Monsieur, mes sincères salutations.
