    Creative translator English to French

    France - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 7

    I've always been passionate with words and writting, and received enthusiast feedbacks when I worked as a journalist in our regional newspaper back in France. I provide French translations that are well written, easy and pleasant to read, with a diverse and rich vocabulary. My work can be specific, technical and direct (such as punchy marketing lines) as well as more redacted and developped. I've been doing translations and reviewing tasks for 4 years now within my company, where I'm a customer service representative covering French and English speakers. I did many translations for French audience as well as for French Canadian one. I've completed a one year translation class.
