Service Description

I'm a French native and I've been living in the UK and USA, for the last 15 years. So I understand the cultural differences between countries and how to tailor information to the people to which it is intended.

I have a technical background in IT, software and electronics engineering. I'm also a certified neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) master practitioner and a certified coach.
This combination of skills and background allow me to help clients clarify the aim of the message they want to convey and ensure it is clear, effective and right for their customers.

Over the years, I have done a fair amount of ad-hoc translations ranging from technical presentations, leaflets, texts for voice over on videos, to general interest including a children's book.
I have always been good with spelling. This naturally led me to do some in depth proof-reading, in English, of marketing and technical material. I can apply the same skills for French proof-reading.
