Bio

Born and raised in France, I left for Austria right after graduation, where I spent ten years and got a Master's degree in translation. I started working full-time as a freelancer in 2016. I've gained experience in several areas, mainly technical, agriculture and marketing, but my thing, really, is translations that require creativity and sound writing skills, particularly with spoken or slang elements.

I'm passionate about politics, social issues (especially gender : I wrote my master's thesis on gender-inclusive language use in French-speaking countries) and the environment, so I give as much time as I can do some volunteer translation work for NGOs and independent media. I'm also a musician, and, like so many of my colleague, a true bookworm.

I would say my greatest quality as a translator is to recognize what a translation needs and focus on making it work, but I'm happiest when I can spend a ridiculous amount of time on one sentence until it sounds just right;)
