Fascinating initiatives are underway to address the array of challenges facing the world today: a doctor in Bangladesh has developed a low-cost ventilator for infants, a young Dutch inventor is devising a system to scoop up plastic floating in the Pacific, entrepreneurs in France are recycling clothes, mattresses, and even cigarette butts to minimize waste and preserve the environment. Yet many of these initiatives do not receive the attention they deserve.

My goal is to help make these stories heard. I translate from French into English, and work with authors to render their writing in English clear and compelling.

For the past 15 years, I have worked as a scientific translator specialized in international development, particularly in research exploring the interplay between human health, animal health, climate change and the environment. I now am expanding my focus beyond the research community to support entrepreneurial efforts to develop sustainable solutions for concrete problems.

My clients include French research and development institutes, French and Swiss universities, international organizations, consulting agencies, and NGOs. These include Bioversity International, CIHEAM IAMM, CIRAD, INRA, IRD, CNRS, WWF, ONIRIS, Aix-Marseille University, University of Savoie, University of Rennes, HEIG-VD, EGIS, Mediterranean Women’s Fund. I also am an active member of Translators Without Borders.

This is what some have said about my work:

"Nous avons beaucoup apprécié tes compétences, ton écoute, ton aide et ton soutien durant cette collaboration."

"Merci Grace pour le travail réalisé avec votre fiabilité...reposante ;))"

"J'ai fortement apprécié travailler avec vous sur l'article...."
