Bio
With over twenty years' experience in many facets of IT, much of it gained in a European environment, I translate with an underlying understanding of the field, both technical and in its application to business and to organisations.

I worked in electronic publishing from 1984, which evolved into internet/intranet development for blue-chip clients. When I joined an Anglo-French IT services company I continued to work on publishing-related projects but also broadened into consultancy work for business IT in general, with major projects in the financial, publishing, health, telecoms, retail and public sectors.

With this background, I'm at home not only with IS/IT- and computing-related technical material, but also with business and marketing: and also in the domains of the physical sciences, environment and development issues; and as a practising performer, in classical music, opera and theatre.

--------

Linguiste de formation, de carrière je suis informaticien et rédacteur polyvalent avec une longue expérience en documentation, en édition électronique et, surtout, en internet, mais également en informatique d'entreprise en général.

Tout le long de ma carrière j'ai travaillé en contexte multilingue, soit en faisant mes recherches, soit en travaillant une dizaine d'années dans un cabinet de conseil informatique anglo-français, soit en développant des sites internet et/ou intranet pour des clients multinationaux.

Les clients pour lesquels je réalise des projets de traduction sont pour la plupart des entreprises du monde francophone souhaitant s'adresser à une clientèle anglo-saxonne. Ainsi ces clients apprécient fort l'atout qu'est un vrai « rosbif », qui non seulement sait apporter une authentique maîtrise de plusieurs domaines, mais aussi sait prêter à leur communication un authentique ton anglais.

Marié depuis une vingtaine d'années à une enseignante universitaire d'astrophysique, je m'intéresse aussi aux sciences et à la technologie, mais aussi (en tant que spectateur) au sport, et (en tant qu'interprète praticant) aux arts du spectacle, surtout au chant classique et à l'opéra.
