French to English Translator & Localizer | English Editor
An excellent translation is not simply words on a page or your computer screen: the tone, intent, text type, target audience, cultural nuances, and more must all be considered and appropriately handled when crafting a translation. If you want your message to shine in another language, you need someone who understands the nitty-gritty of what makes a translation successful (and unsuccessful), has an eye for detail, and can creatively solve problems. In short, you need someone like me.
I’m native English (United States) speaker and a recent graduate from a translation MA program. Most of my translation experience and interest lies in the literary, scientific, medical, social sciences, and business fields.
From 7th-12th grade, I was enrolled in French classes in public school, and I continued my French studies during undergraduate and graduate schooll, giving me 12 years of studying and using the French language.
Outside of my passion for the art of translation, I’m an avid reader, and I believe that daily reading in French and English is essential in order to continue improving my vocabulary and language skills. I’m also a creative writer, and write fictional novels, short stories, and other types of stories (mostly fantasy, science-fiction, speculative, and literary fiction). My other hobbies are playing video games, playing tabletop RPGs with friends, gardening, exercising, and spending time with family.
If you are interested in my services, please contact me through email, here, on ProZ, or on LinkedIn. I am happy to provide translation samples and a copy of my CV. I look forward to hearing from you and learning about your project!
Office hours: Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm CT
