Bio

Hello and welcome to my profile!



I’m a French-to-English translator.

English is my mother tongue (variant: Hiberno-English).

 

SPECIALIST AREAS

Legal & notarial texts

I worked for eight years as a bilingual PA in a British law
firm in Paris and I am very comfortable with legal texts. I also have
considerable experience translating notarial deeds.

Newsletters and journalism

I very much enjoy translating newsletters and journalistic
texts and I regularly get compliments about my writing style.  I also translate a lot of social media content
on themes such as tourism, eco-friendliness and beauty tips. I get lots of
repeat work in this field, which is a great source of pride for me.

Marketing texts, particularly skincare/haircare/beauty

I am very familiar with English beauty industry terminology,
which allows me to produce natural-sounding translations in a field where
literal translations often fail

Corporate texts

I regularly translate corporate texts such as reports,
procedures and policies. In this field, I am very attentive to producing “polished”
language that sounds professional.

Speeches and subtitling

I enjoy translating oral language and pride myself on
producing natural-sounding speech in the target language (e.g. CEOs’ speeches, product
presentation speeches, subtitling for videos, etc.).

 

RECENT PRAISE FOR MY WORK

Michelle, I wanted to tell you that the proof-reader congratulates you on the quality of your translation”

Hello Michelle, This is what the client said ‘Could you assign this project to the person who translated the article about happiness?’ The client really liked it.”
