Are you looking for a trustworthy professional to translate, edit, proofread or enhance your French-language documents when you need them? Here I am.

I am a qualified communications professional.

Translating, editing and writing are my passions. The services I offer are personalized and tailored to your needs and deadlines.

Whether you're looking for a more effective way of conveying a message, seeking to translate a document into French or hoping to write something based on your ideas, I'm here to help. You can count on me for on-time delivery. In addition, confidentiality and discretion are always guaranteed!

I am a member of the following professional associations:

I am a native French speaker; I am also detail-oriented.

I also have in-depth knowledge of English, Italian, and Spanish. However, I translate and edit exclusively into French (my native language). I am committed to conveying clear and effective messages and adapting them to specific local and cultural realities. I am always looking for the right word, the right expression, and the very best way of expressing your thoughts!  When it comes to communications, I have to know what I'm doing! That means I only undertake translation projects when I am familiar with the subject matter.

For example, I have expertise in a variety of areas, including health and well-being, psychology, food, nutrition, gastronomy, food industry, sports, and physical fitness (including yoga, Pilates, and figure skating), arts, culture, history, and tourism.

I think we'd work well together! Please contact me if you are looking for:

  • Someone who's a conscientious team player.
  • Someone who's available for a wide variety of translation, editing, and French-language writing projects.
  • Someone who cares as much about your project as you do.
  • Someone who's detail-oriented and not afraid to ask questions or suggest improvements when needed.
  • Someone with extensive cultural sensitivity and deep knowledge of a broad array of topics, ensuring an idiomatic translation each and every time.

  • Translation into French and Italian
