Contests won Third Translation Contest: English to French
Professional practices Lydia Barthélémy endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Winner of the Third Translation Contest English > French


A native speaker of French, I was born and raised in Paris where I lived until 1981. After completion of my study, I settled in the Netherlands where I now do translation work.

In order to extend my knowledge of the Dutch language, I decided twelve years ago to start with a study for translator and interpreter. I also have a Master degree in translation and I specialized in literary translations.

In the past five years I have translated various texts in the fields of Human Resources, politics, economy, European affairs, education, tourism, etc. I am also included in the data-bases of a number of translation agencies and work for several organizations.

As I am a perfectionist, I am not easily satisfied. I stand for quality, adaptibility, flexibility and will always endeavour to meet the client's needs.

Plus qu'un métier, la traduction est devenue avant tout une passion.

Je traduis vers ma langue maternelle (le français) des textes rédigés dans
la langue étrangère que je maîtrise (le néerlandais).
