Technical Translator - Scientist - Excel Expert
Last active: 01/08/2013
I am a French native speaker, and I have been living in the USA for over 5 years. I am therefore absolutely fluent in both languages, with a strong understanding of both cultures.
I have been living in many places in the USA, from Washington DC to California, working most notably for NASA and with Stanford.
While I am an aerospace engineer by education, I have provided professional translation services to several large corporations, both US and French, including over $30k of contracted work for the French Space Agency and the worldwide educational program GLOBE. I have also worked for web and high-tech start-up, both from France and Silicon Valley, creating website content and writing official releases in both languages.
I am a professional MS Excel user, and can do about anything Excel enables us to do, with and without VBA and macros, which is a lot but that few people actually know about.
I designed in a large part NASA Excel-based satellite orbital control system design software, as well as complete accounting tools for SME and non-profit organization.
I am particularly dedicated to my work and make sure the deliverables are consistently flawless. My education (2 masters from top European and top US university) and work experience (NASA, Stanford, ...) are demonstrating an exceptionally standard of high quality for all deliverables, and the ability to work quickly and efficiently.
I am currently developing the U.S. activities of a French strategy consulting company, therefore I am currently living both in Mountain View, California, and in Toulouse, France.
I have used, both professionally and personally, several audio and signal processing software (Audacity, ...)
For significant amount of work contracted, I am always happy to provide a risk-free assessment of my work over a few hours.
I would be delighted to hear about your needs, and I am looking forward to helping you with your translations and/or transcriptions work.
I can guarantee I will always meet your deadline and be dedicated to your project as if it was mine.
