Service Description

With a background in law (MA French law degree) and commerce, I have over 12 years of experience as a translator in the fields of Law, Politics, Economics and Commerce (particularly contractual work).

My professional experience also includes simultaneous and consecutive interpretation for various NGO's and intergovernmental organizations such as UNAIDS, ILO, IOM, African Union, SADC, WTO, WHO and the ADB, which has given me extensive language expertise in many different areas.

Being of dual nationality and having completed my secondary and tertiary education in France, I have equal mastery of both French and English which enables me to translate into either language with fluency and ease.

I am a sworn translator (accredited by the High Court in Cape Town) and also accredited by the South African Translator's Institute (SATI) of which I am a member. These credentials, combined with attention to detail and a meticulous approach, enables me to faithfully convey the specific thoughts and intentions expressed in the original text.

Finally, you can rest assured that I will take all the steps necessary to ensure the consistent delivery of work of a high professional standard and to meet the agreed deadlines.
