Writer, Translator, Expert in French - Efficient, Reliable, Cheerful
Last active: 2 days ago
I am a native Frenchman with a Bachelor's degree in French Language and Literature. My French is flawless; I can provide an elegant, high-quality translation from English to French and write on numerous topics. I pay close attention to spelling, grammar, punctuation, typography, language register and, of course, the flow of sentences. The texts I provide have always a very professional look. If I have the slightest doubt about the terminology that is used in your documents, I do a thorough research.
My experience: I edited, proofread, rewrote ≈ 2,000 literary works and wrote ≈ 400 biographies for Etudier.com. I translated from English to French very technical texts (e.g. about dentistry) as well as literary ones.
My main interests: I studied literature, cinema, history, medicine, philosophy, and I am interested in biology and science in general, politics, civilizations, health, animals, and so much more.
I have been working on Upwork for nearly two years now, and I have noticed that a lot of clients with few or no knowledge of French language are deceived by people — even those with good reviews — who pretend to be experts in it, but provide texts full of mistakes and blunders. I know it because I am paid to fix their work. My mother tongue is a very tricky matter and one has to have studied it carefully in order to write well in French; “being a native” is not enough. One solution you have to avoid contractors lacking competence is to check the results of the French tests they passed (or should pass). Even if there are some mistakes in them (that I brought to Upwork and ExpertRating's attention), on the whole, they can be trusted. If you have doubts about a work someone did for you, I can proofread a sample of it very quickly, highlighting the different problems I find so that you can see them yourself.
I hope you will trust me to help you. Should you wish to have any further information, I remain at your disposal.
Thank you for reading all this!
