Service Description

I offer professional and high-quality written translations from English to French. I have a Masters degree in professional written translation, and i have two years' work experience dealing directly with the French affiliate of a global business.

I specialise in business and financial translations, but also have experience in literature, tourism and cultural texts and publicity and advertising. All jobs will be considered, and only texts that I believe I can fully and accurately translate will be taken on, so a quality finish can be assured.

Translations are always strictly confidential, faithful to the original text, and written with the needs of the end reader at heart. Written in fluent English, the final translations will be to a standard indistinguishable from an original English text.

With a wide range of sources and French native-speaker contacts, the end translations will be in natural, accurate English, with appropriate tone, style and terminology.
