Je suis traducteur d’origine anglaise qui vous assure une traduction soignée et fiable des documents dans plusieurs domaines :

> La logistique
> La technologie (terminaux de point de vente, dispositifs médicaux, nouvelles technologies, etc.)
> Le sport (matériel, astuces, techniques)
> L'œnologie
> Les documents commerciaux (plaquettes commerciales, contrats commerciaux, etc.)
> Les supports de communication (dossiers de presse, communiqués de presse, sites web, etc.)
> Le journalisme

Ma formation comprend deux licences en Angleterre (l’une scientifique - en botanique et en microbiologie - l’autre en théologie) ainsi qu’une formation approfondie en traduction de l’Université de City, Londres. J'ai passé des examens du Chartered Institute of Linguists de Londres. Habitant en France depuis 2007, je suis également titulaire d'un Master 2 en théologie de l’Université Catholique de Lille.

En tant que membre du Chartered Institute of Linguists (du Royaume-Uni), je respecte une déontologie professionnelle rigoureuse.

Je ne traduis que vers l’anglais britannique, ma langue maternelle, en conformité avec la déontologie de l’Institute of Linguists de Londres.

N'hésitez pas à me contacter pour discuter de vos projets de traduction.


I am an English native who has been living and working in France since 2007. I translate regularly in the following fields:

> Logistics
> Technology (e.g. EPOS terminals, medical devices, emerging technology)
> Sport (equipment, tips and techniques)
> Oenology
> General business and communication documents/tools (e.g. press kits, press releases, websites, business contracts)
> Journalism

This list of fields is non-exhaustive and I consider each project on an individual basis.

My background includes academic training in several different degree subjects in both science (BSc Botany with Microbiology) and the arts (BA in theology + 2-year Master's degree in theology taught entirely in French from the Université Catholique de Lille). This is complemented by formal training in the principles and practice of French to English translation via a postgraduate certificate from City University (London). I also hold the Chartered Institute of Linguists' Diploma in Translation (DipTransIoLET), having achieved the following results:

General Paper: Merit
Technology (semi-specialised option): Pass
Science (semi-specialised option): Distinction

As a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (MCIL), I follow a strict code of professional practice. By way of a long-term project for continuing professional development, I am currently pursuing an MA in translation at the Open University, UK (since February 2019). Please feel free to contact me to discuss your translation requirements.
