Bio

Dear visitor,

Thank you for your interest in visiting this page. My name is Nathalie, I am a French translator, specialised in Slavic languages. I graduated in Foreign Applied Languages and obtained a MA in Russian and English translations in 1995.

I was born in Nantes, Brittany, France, where I grew up. I left my home town when I turned 18 to keep on studying Russian at a university level. During my studies, I took every opportunity to travel abroad. I was part of a one year university exchange programme in the United States and worked there for 2 months. From Oklahoma University, I was selected to study Spanish at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico. Back to Europe in 1992, I obtained university grants to study Polish, Slovak and Russian respectively at the University of Wroclaw, Bratislava and Lomonossov in Moscow. At that time I was offered the post of translator/interpreter of the French Consul at the French Embassy in Moscow. This unique experience has been a great opportunity to gain expertise in Russian translating and interpreting, in particular during these difficult years of political instability. I lived 2 years in Moscow.

It is a fact, I have always been interested in languages and have seen it as an open window to other cultures and different ways of thinking. I am always surprised to see that we, people can think and express differently things that we all feel the same. I like this diversity.
I often feel myself being more Russian than French. Russian colleagues and friends can tell. It is part of myself and has a substantial impact on my daily life. I enjoy the challenge of bridging the gap between several cultures.

I have lived in the area of The Hague in the Netherlands for 15 years. I combine a freelance translator job with an administrative staff position at the European Space Agency. On one hand I daily interact with engineers and scientific specialised in the outer space and its applications. I organise lessons learned conferences to their attention. On the other hand, I am also well integrated into the translator and interpreter community of The Hague and Amsterdam. A huge and sincere thank goes to them for their welcome and generous support. Many international organisations and tribunals are located in The Hague. I enjoy the diversity of the expat community living in The Hague.

Furthermore, I am seconded from the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and have many contacts with the French scientific community.
