Sylviane Seguin Agency Contractor


Canada - Tests: 3

Over the last 15 years I have translated many different types of documents from French to English and from English to French. Born and raised in Canada enabled to me to become perfectly bilingual and therefore to apply this skill in many domains. I have translated documents while doing my Bachelor's degree at Concordia University and at McGill University when I was a research assistant. I have translated contracts, letters, invoices when I worked for a commercial construction company and have translated a website and a book when I worked for a birthing center.
