Bio
I am a French to English translator specializing in literature, politics, journalism, travel and medicine. 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.
While I mainly specialize in literary translation, I also have a strong background in medicine 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 medical terminology. When I decided to change my career path, I focused the final years of my B.A. on politics and foreign language.
I have two years of experience working as a freelance translator. I have worked with a wide variety of clients, always met the predetermined deadlines, and have completed numerous different projects, including the translation of medical records, diplomas, military records, general correspondence, newspaper articles, letters of recommendation, 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 concerning my education and 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 the country. I have also spent the last decade traveling the world, gaining what I consider to be an informal education on cultural diversity.
