Hello and welcome to my profile!
I’m a French-to-English translator.
English is my mother tongue (variant: Hiberno-English).
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
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.).
