Professional practices Jean-Philippe Drécourt endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Overall linguistic is very good. Style is natural and sounds as expected. Definitely JP will have to "train" the other linguists regarding the style. (Comment from a recent client in a large project involving many linguists)

Over 2 million words translated over the past seven years.

A combination of strong technical knowledge (2 engineering degrees) and style adapted to the content: Dynamic for marketing content (PR, websites) and straight to the point for technical presentations (manuals, specifications).

For maximum quality, all translations are:
- Checked using Antidote HD, a state of the art French grammar and spell-checking software
- Proofread against the source text: for accuracy
- Proofread again on their own: for consistency and natural style in the target language.
