Bonjour ! I am a native French speaker and have lived in England for many years. I have more than 20 years experience as an English to French translator. I am an ex-IT Engineer with a passion for the French language and grammar; I create very high quality translations. I specialise in technical and corporate texts such as reports, manuals, brochures, web sites, training courses, standards and software localisation. I work directly with clients and through agencies. Please review my services and testimonials below. Do not hesitate to contact me with any queries or to discuss potential projects.
À bientôt !
As a freelance French translator (member of the ITI), I specialize in technical translations but I also work in various subjects such as tourism, fashion, nutrition, education, hotel industry, to mention just a few. I have been translating since 1995, after working as an Embedded Software Quality Assurance Engineer (Aérospatiale, France) and IT Engineer (Logica, UK). I have long term relationships with the agencies I work for and through them I have worked for clients such as:
"Also, I should pass on his praise for the quality of the French translations in general for these Raymarine WPs.

"Just to let you know - Shell echoed the comments of our proofreader and wanted me to pass on to you how pleased they were with the translation.
This is being translated into lots of languages and I think they were pleasantly surprised at how little they revised with the French and the extra effort you made to localise the text. Thanks again for your efforts!" (RWS)
