This type of translation involves more creative work to adapt concepts and ideas successfully in the sociocultural context of your receiving audience. We collaborate closely so that I can fully integrate your vision and understand your company, corporate culture, product, approach and goals. Then, based on your original text, I translate and rephrase your contents into French to create an authentic result with a natural flow, for a full impact on your target audience.

About Me


I set up as a freelance translator in 2016 and have not looked back since then! Before that, I spent 14 years working in large multinational companies. I understand the challenges faced when dealing with people from varied cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I know how vital clear communication is.


In terms of qualifications, I graduated and post-graduated in Modern Languages (English and Spanish) and International Business, before specialising further with a Post Graduate Degree in International Exchanges. Following this, I qualified as a language teacher and later, as a translator. I settled in England in 2002 after travelling extensively through South America and Europe.

Bring Your Stories to Life in French!

L’autrice américaine Sawyer Bennett s’inspire de son expérience concrète de la vie pour écrire des histoires qui résonnent auprès d’un large public. Avec pour cadre les Outer Banks de Caroline du Nord, sur fond d’océan Atlantique, le dépaysement est assuré !

Dans cette série de romance contemporaine, Sawyer Bennett nous entraîne avec fraîcheur dans le sillage de personnages attachants et colorés, le tout dans une ambiance « made in America ». Soleil, surf, plage, drames de vie, amitié, sororité, sentiments : nous suivons des personnages à la fois forts et fragiles, qui résolument, affrontent la vie et ses imprévus avec résilience et humour, tout en assumant à 100 % une sexualité sans tabous. Un souffle de liberté pour une lecture légère et distrayante teintée d’une touche d’érotisme.


Process, Price & Timeline

I need to know what type of document you want to translate, what the purpose of your translation is and who the translation is for. Context is key! I will ask you to provide your document or text, preferably as a Word doc or PDF. Based on this information, I will get back to you with an accurate quote and a realistic deadline.

Rates reflect the size of the document (number of pages, word/ character count and overall volume) while considering timescale constraints, complexity, creativity and any specific formatting (such as images, handwriting and specific file types) or certification requirements.

You will always receive a written estimate before I undertake any translation work, including price information, deadline and payment terms. Everything is clear from the beginning.
