Beyond literal translation for projects like user manuals, my specialty is localization do adapt your content to the context, i.e. the EU and specially the French market to appeal and relate to local customers. I adapt your content to the French language while keeping the original tone and voice.

My specialties are web content, UI, training and communications materials, articles/white papers translation/localization, generally with a focus on marketing, business, new technologies, social issues or lifestyles, but I have also worked on books, user manuals (software), video games and Facebook applications.

I have experience translating speeches (TED videos for instance) so I can use a conversational voice if required by a project.
I NEVER use a "free web based" translation software.

We have written numerous articles for various websites and publications on subjects ranging from baby sitting to dating advice, via cancer prevention and shirts for men.
