Since 2006, I have been providing quality translation services from French to English specializing in higher education, social sciences and international relations, and the creative industries. My translations have enabled dozens of universities, business schools, academics, development agencies, artists, authors and more to communicate their message accurately in impeccable English.

I am a native English speaker, born and raised in New Zealand, and equally at ease translating into British and American English. I have been living and working in France for eleven years, and I am a full member of the Société française des traducteurs.

* First class honours degree in French (specializing in translation) and Political Science, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
* Master of International Relations, Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

"One word comes to mind when describing Jessica Edwards' work: professionalism.
Her strict respect for deadlines, her style perfectly adaptable to the subject at hand, her choice of the 'mot juste' make her a truly exceptional translator.
Jessica did a wonderful job translating our website of over 100 pages.
She definitely masters the art of translation."
