Professional Translations from English into (France) French


A translator you hired delivers a poor translation?
Makes common translation/spelling/grammar mistakes?
Does not know the subtleties of their own language?

A translator uses a machine translation software (Google Translate, Babylon, Systran)?

A translator has only a basic school level/understanding of the source language?

A translator tells you he/she is familiar with a subject when they're not?
And the terminology is all wrong? Not the one used by the customer?

You get No feedback on the current job?
Not answering their phone?
Not Calling you back?
Ignoring your calls?

A translator tells you his/her computer has crashed and they've lost everything, preferably 2 days before delivery of a large document?

A translator does not deliver in time?
Or justifies at the last minute why he/she can't observe the deadline - “I've been ill, my children were sick, my car/computer/house/dog broke down” – You've probably heard it all, when they're simply disorganized?

A translator has subcontracted somebody else to do the job you've hired him/her to do?

A translator does not even proofread his/her work before delivery?

A translator does not have good computer skills and delivers in the wrong format or a format You or your customer can't read?

Well, what if I told you that, at Extra Speech, I'm doing the exact opposite:

I've been a professional Translator for over 25 years. Although I'm fully bilingual, having lived 14 years in English-speaking countries, I'm only translating from English into French (from France), my mother tongue.

I do not use Machine Translation software. I do real translations, right the first time.
I love Computer-Assisted Translation software though, anything that can help:
Electronic dictionaries
Spell checkers
Terminology databases
Terminology Managers such as SDL MultiTerm for homogeneous style and terminology throughout the translation
Translation memory systems such as SDL Trados Studio (2017 Pro) for a faster delivery of translation projects, Improved consistency and a more accurate, consistent and a higher quality translation.

Translations of websites (SGML, XML, HTML), Adobe® PDF, FrameMaker® and InDesign®, PageMaker and InCopy, OpenDocument files; straight text files; source code files, such as Java and Microsoft .NET; Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint; QuarkXPress

I am a technical translator. I only work on subjects I know or after research.

Having subcontracted myself, I know being responsible of a project can be stressful and I'm happy to keep you informed about the progress of the project.

Backup of all documents in target documents, Translation Memory, plus dual mirrored servers, and an NAD storage system tied into an offsite secure backup system. No way I can lose a project. I can even keep them years after for you to recover.

Delivery always on time.
I understand, sometimes, a lot is at stake. Everybody's reputation is on the line, and so is your relationship with your customer, so I'll make sure to always observe the deadline. Plus I'm very organized. That's a 100% guarantee.

No other translators involved. The translation is done by me only.

All Translations are printed before proofread.

100% guaranteed customer Satisfaction

So Contact me to get your peace of mind, knowing that your translation job is in good hands!
