Bio








I am a French to English freelance translator specializing in literature,
politics, journalism, marketing, travel, tourism and science. I received my
B.A. from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR in 2010 with a double major
in French studies and international affairs. I received my Masters in literary
translation from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May of 2015.
I am a Proz Certified Pro, member of ATA and ALTA and I volunteer for
Translators Without Borders.

While I mainly specialize in literary translation, I also have a
strong background in science and politics. Before redirecting my career path to
pursue foreign language and translation, I hoped to attend medical school
following my undergraduate education. I worked in several immediate care
clinics as well as a veterinary hospital while completing prerequisite courses
for medical school at my university (anatomy, biology, chemistry, etc.) and am
therefore highly proficient in scientific concepts and terminology. When I
decided to change my career path, I focused the final years of my B.A. on international
relations and foreign language.

I have six years of experience working as a freelance translator
(started in 2013). I have worked with a wide variety of direct clients and
agencies, always meet the predetermined deadlines, and have completed numerous
different projects, including the translation of touristic information, medical
records, diplomas, military records, general correspondence, newspaper
articles, letters of recommendation, short stories and much more. I am highly
professional and pride myself in producing quality translations on time at a
competitive price.

In addition to having a strong background in terms of my education and
professional experience, I lived in France and Morocco for three and a half
years and spent time in numerous regions, giving me a strong grasp of varying
dialects and cultural differences throughout these countries. I have also spent
the last decade traveling the world, gaining what I consider to be an informal
education on cultural diversity.
