I am a Freelance French-English Translator specialising in Marketing, Business and Beauty translation, transcreation, proofreading and editing. Based in the UK and a native English speaker, I have the IoLET Level 7 Diploma in Translation, a BA degree in French and the CIM Diploma in Marketing. I work with SDL Trados Studio 2017 and Memsource, and I am an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
I have a strong background in marketing - over my 13 year marketing career, which started in fashion in New York, I worked on beauty brands within the UK and globally, with experience in finance and publishing along the way. I have over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, during which I worked at the London office of a French beauty brand for 5 years, where I was responsible for translating pack copy, consumer marketing materials and presentations from French into English.
My years of experience on the client side mean I understand first-hand the importance of attention to detail and crafting copy to convey the right message and tone - copy that will achieve the desired impact. I love combining my knowledge of marketing, business and beauty with my passion for languages. Most importantly, it's hugely rewarding to make a difference for clients by helping them to convey their message and thereby achieve the results they're looking for.
