Bio
I am an experienced, professional, reliable, France-based, quadrilingual freelance translator.

I have more than 8 years professional experience in translating.

My native language is French and I translate only into this language.

Being quadrilingual in French, English, Greek and German, I deliver high quality, impeccable translations — on time.

I have a degree in Business and Economics from the Institut Commercial de Nancy, Université de Nancy II, France (1999). I then specialized in Fashion Merchandising Management, taking part in a one-year-long exchange program at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, NY, USA (2000).

Prior to working full-time as a freelance translator, I spent 10 years working as a Brand Manager, then Export Manager in the fashion industry for a high-end accessory manufacturer. My job took me to various countries and audiences which allowed me to use my translating skills on a day-to-day basis. This background established a solid foundation for my most specialised translation projects based on a broad understanding of various general business practices.

Beside being an experienced linguist, I am a passionate reader of the press in all my language pairs: the New Yorker, The Economist, Die Zeit, L’Express, L’Expansion, Le Point, Le Monde. Finishing my business studies, I considered starting a career in journalism, working as a trainee, then a pigiste for renowned French publications, such as the newspaper Le Monde. As a result, my copywriting skills are excellent.

I am also lucky to live in a multilingual family, which not only ensures a daily connection with each of my spoken and written languages, but also keep me up to date with the newest words and expressions. I lived 7 years in Germany, 2 years in France and 2 years in the United States and I still travel a lot.

My main specialist translation fields are:
Sales, Marketing
Advertising and PR
Fashion, Garments, Cosmetics
Automotive
Journalism
Economics

My workload per day varies from 2500 to 4500 words according to the level of complexity of the document.
