Profile

Background

Let me introduce myself in a few words: Born and raised in France where I completed my schooling, it was obvious from early on that I had a taste for foreign languages. Therefore I decided to devote my education to them and later, my professional life. I went to university in France and Spain where I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Langues étrangères appliquées (Applied Foreign Languages) in English and Spanish. I also took Italian, Arab and Dutch courses.

In 2002 I decided to start as an independent translator when I settled in Canada. Since the very beginning, I’ve been collaborating with translation agencies in Montreal who quickly placed their confidence in me. Thanks to them and through the diversity of the themes and styles addressed, I could develop a demonstrated adaptability.

In past years I have acquired a solid experience by translating thousands of documents for private clients in Europe and Canada as well as for various Canadian government departments and government related bodies. The topics dealt with are numerous, from the Website of a road haulier to retirement pension plans of public service officers, international research and innovation programs or war memories of veterans.

OTTIAQ

For every new project, I have only one goal: to deliver a high standard of work to the satisfaction of my clients. In order to provide you with an extra guarantee of quality, I completed a training on ethics and professional practice and was granted the title of Certified Translator of OTTIAQ* in the English-French combination.

 

*The Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec is the most renowned Canadian association of language professionals, affiliated with the International Federation of Translators (link). The grant of the certification recognizes the skills and professionalism of the translator. The members of the Order are subject to its Code of ethics (link) and must comply with confidentiality clauses. For more information about OTTIAQ and its regulation, please click here (link).
