    English to French translator

    France - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 4

    Hello, my name is Marine, and my native language is French. I am a professional translator and I have a have degree in Applied Foreign Languages in English, Japanese and Korean. I have done a lot of freelance translation in various fields. My area of expertise is educational content. I am currently working for Coursera localizing their learning platform, and I also worked for the company Education First. I have worked for the language learning website Livemocha as well, both as a translator and a content creator (French lessons). I have also translated for courses for two different institutions. Additionally, I worked as a French language tutor for a year in Korea. But even though educational content is my preference, I am comfortable in many other fields as well. I have worked many hours for Webinterpret here on Odesk (ebay listings). I have also been working for Strakertranslations for over a year, and there I translate mostly technical, legal or marketing documents. I have done a lot of "one time" translations here on Odesk as well, with many different subjects. If you need a fast and accurate French translator, please contact me !
