Source text - English For as long as I remember,
I've loved mathematics.
Actually, it's not 100 percent true.
I've loved mathematics for all
but a two-week period
in senior high school.
I was top of my class,
and we were about to start
the Extension Maths course.
I was really excited
about this brand new topic coming up,
I like complex.
Translation - French D'aussi loin que je me souvienne,
j'ai toujours aimé les maths.
Bon, en fait, c'est pas vrai à 100%.
J'ai aimé les maths sauf
pendant deux semaines
J'étais le premier,
et nous allions commencer
le cours sur l'extension.
J'étais excité à l'idée
de ce nouveau sujet,
les nombres complexes.
J'aime le complexe.
English to French: The powerful stories that shaped Africa General field: Other Detailed field: History
Source text - English And we are left with powerful lessons,
reminded once again
of how our history and narrative
have held communities
together for millennia,
how they remain vital
in making sense of modern Africa.
And we're also reminded
of how the roots of this confident,
outward-facing, culturally porous,
was once the envy of the world.
Translation - French Et nous ne pouvons que
tirer de puissantes leçons,
nous rappelant une fois de plus
comment notre histoire
a préservé des communuatés
depuis des millénaires,
comment elle demeure vitale
et fait sens pour l'Afrique moderne.
Et nous pouvons nous souvenir
qu'il fut un temps où les racines de
cette Afrique confiante, intellectuelle
ouverte culturellement et
sur le monde, libre de droits
étaient enviée du monde.
After studying Tourism and Hotel Management in France and Germany, I promoted France as a touristic destination.
Then I left for the Philippines, where I worked for 5 years in a global IT company. I developed SAP and project support competencies before managing local teams up to 25 people. I kept working in IT back to France.
During my 10 years' experience in IT, I held various leading positions in client management and IT project support, from Service Delivery Manager to Service Quality Leader. I developed core skills and mindset in continuous improvement (Lean, Agility®), training (creation of a University with career paths for a support project) and project support for operational teams in France and offshore.
My passion for foreign languages and my solid professional experience led me to translation business. Now, I help smaller or bigger companies who want to develop, keep or expand their worldwide presence to communicate by translating their documents or any other support from English, German and Spanish into French, most specifically in IT, Aeronautics and Tourism.
Languages and multicultural environments are the basics for my job. I add to that my sense of service and quality, organisational skills, and willingness to learn, which I believe are crucial ingredients for a Translator!
