Translating academically and professionally since 2002, specialising in:

IT | Engineering | Financial | Business | Creative

From French or Swedish to English

Technical translation for financial, IT, engineering, construction, radio frequency, wireless and antennas, software, hardware, programming and, of course, general business texts.

At ease with actually spinning up and maintaining servers, websites, code-bases and all manner of Linux/Unix, Mac and Windows terminology. I work with the major Microsoft and open source termbases and glossaries, as well as the EU termbase for each language converted to a translation memory and used in MemoQ.

I am a licensed amateur radio operator and frequently communicate with other French and Scandinavian licensed operators. I have also worked extensively in the construction and engineering industries - mainly automotive and manufacturing - over my translation career.

Creative translation is also offered, with some 100 Franco-Belgian comic book translations being published from 2005-2009 (Lucky Luke, Yoko Tsunu, Wind in the Willows and many more). In addition, transcreation projects for marketing copy, brands and re-writing are also undertaken, having written successfully for many household names over the years (including Eurostar).
