Focus First Proofreading

PO Box 55
Georgetown, ON L7G 4T1
Primary contact: 


I have more than 20 years of experience in bilingual (English & French) proofreading, editing and translation. A native French speaker (originally from Montreal), I have been fluently bilingual from a very young age and have continued to refine my linguistic skills over the years. The majority of my professional experience has been spent translating, editing and proofreading a variety of content, coordinating projects for linguistic departments and supervising internal employees as well as outsourced translation teams for Fortune 500 companies.

Mistakes (spelling, grammar, etc.) have always jumped off the page at me, both in French and in English, and I want to help individuals and businesses alike make sure that they put forth clear, polished and error-free communications, thus making great first and lasting impressions on their own clients.
