I am a professional English to French translator, member of the Société française des Traducteurs (SFT or French Translators Society) and a holder of the Diploma in Translation (Merit) from the Chartered Institute of Linguists. I'm based in Kentish Town, London and have more than 20 years experience living and working in the UK.
After studying translation at university in France, I went on to gain valuable hands-on experience in teaching, IT, film (Well Wishers by K. Scouler) and project management in the UK. This enabled me to become not only fluent in English but also aware of cultural and socio-economic differences between the French and the English.
My experience as an in-house translator with a busy translation agency was invaluable in understanding business requirements and pressures. It also taught me the importance of over-delivering, particularly in terms of deadline and creativity.
I divide my time between London and South Western France so that I can remain fully up to speed in both languages. I attend regular translation seminars, both in the UK and overseas, and continuing professional development (CPD) courses and I am also equipped with Trados, Termium and a comprehensive reference library, all backed up with technical contacts and excellent research skills.
I've consistently produced high quality translations for a wide range of clients in many sectors - from finance, industry and law to advertising, IT, screenwriting, tourism and entertainment.
In March 2009, I was nominated for a GLE's Rising Star Award. The competition, run in association with the London Development Agency, recognises exciting and promising entrepreneurs based in Great London for their initial success and future potential across all sectors.
I deliver accurate, effective and prompt translations and am always on hand to discuss any queries my clients may have. Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your needs or to obtain a free quotation, a sample translation, a copy of my cv or a letter of reference.
