My agency background gives me the edge and a clear understanding on clients’ needs in terms of timings, quality and confidentiality. Services I provide: transcreation, copywriting, subtitling, editing and proofreading. Field of expertise: Marketing (press releases, brochures, websites, apps, social network content, apps, interactive media, etc.) List of brands I work for available on demand. What do clients say about my work? "Did an excellent, creative and highly-articulate V1 on a recent transcreation job. Very impressed by the calibre of her work." Jan, 2014 "Camille worked on a couple of leaflets for us recently (btw, with a very short turnaround time) and managed to further improve the quality of copy that was already to a very high standard. She made some minor changes that made the copy sound truly idiomatic. That final touch that makes all the difference and leaves no possibility of it being seen as a translation." Apr, 2014 "Excellent translator. Good communication and a pleasure to work with!" Jun, 2014
