Profile

About Me

I am an experienced translator and subtitler. I hold a diploma from the Chartered Institute of Linguists (Diploma in translation - DipTransIoLET, 2006).

I was born and raised in France and also learned English from the age of two with the English members of my family. I was schooled in a bilingual establishment up to graduation, and I have lived and worked in London for the best part of 17 years.

I also lived in Spain for several years, as well as in Colombia, and I am fluent in Spanish.

I have also had regular extended stays in Brazil and Portugal, and understand and speak both these forms of Portuguese.

I regularly travel to these locations, both for business and pleasure, although I am mainly based in London.

Languages have always fascinated me, and living in each of the countries of which I speak the language has allowed me to soak in their culture. This gives me a great advantage in terms of real fluency.

I have an excellent grasp of English, French and Spanish in every register - from informal, spoken or street language, to formal, business, and varied literary styles.
