Overview

Hi,
A professional translator (from English to French) based in Paris, I work for the Huffington Post in France and Quebec, and other brands like Buffet Group, Vice Media or Nurun (through which, among others, I translated for L'Oréal).

Besides, I work as a proofreader for a French newspaper (Ouest France) and published a novel in october 2014 (Le Cortege des Epileptiques).

Here are listed some of the articles I translated recently for the Huffington Post (my name is mentioned at the very end of the article):...

Service Description

I try to avoid literal translations that sound terrible in French.
So, most of the time, my job is more a literary one, based on adapting without betraying the meaning.
It's especially important in journalism, literature and communication, and it is what I'm trying to provide.
Also, even though I work fast and efficiently, I proofread myself many times in order to offer a high-quality translation.

As a published author and lover of the French language, I like short and efficient sentences. These are the most capable of reaching a reader's heart or making one's idea understandable.

Here is a reading of the three first pages of my book:
