Since early 2004 I am helped by my wife Josee Pelchat, an excellent French proofreader. In 2005 we officialized our business association by co-founding Les Services redactionnels Manche de pelle.

We offer translation services from English to French and French to English, with a specialization in Canadian French or Quebecois French, in a wide array of fields (see below).

Francois Couture has an M.A. in Quebec Literature. Before choosing translation as his full-time job, he has worked as a University research assistant and lecturer. He has been doing radio work for the past 12 years.

Josee Pelchat has a B.A. in languages and linguistics. She handles all proofreading and administrative duties.

We are known for our quick turnaroud, our quality work and our commitment to customer satisfaction.

We also offer editing, proofreading and writing services in French.
