Bio

French native, working as a full-time freelance translator since 2018.


My initial background is in Business and Banking. I've worked in Finance for several years, and as an Assistant Manager of a small business for a few more years. There I gained knowledge in accounting, financial products, derivatives and forex.

My love of languages eventually led me to get a B.A. in English has well as a B.A. in Swedish, after which I worked first as an English teacher, then a Swedish teacher.

Having lived and worked in Kentucky, USA for about a year, I specialize in American English (C2).

I am a firm believer in lifelong education and I am still working on my master's thesis on the grammaticalization of Swedish auxiliary verbs, will will be the last step in obtaining my M.A. in Nordic Studies.


My current fields of specialization are:

  • Education and HR
  • Business --> The work in this field is varied, but broadly speaking, in English I usually tend to work more on Marketing documents - which sometimes involve transcreation, while in Swedish almost half of my work involves legal documents.
  • Academics and Social Science

And I am interested in expanding into:

  • Finance, Banking and Accounting
  • Literature and Media


My process

I am very detail oriented and I like having the time and freedom to do a great job. I care a lot about the finished product I deliver.


Recent projects I've particularly enjoyed working on

  • A math app for children
  • Lesson plans for Think Equal (through Translators Without Borders)
  • Training material for a sales class
  • A guide for evidence-based research for Evidence Aid (through Translators Without Borders)
  • A series of resources for cancer patients during the covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns
