I run a small language services company ("espace anglais") on a freelance basis, providing French-to-English translation and proofreading, and revision of content written in English by non-native speakers. The company was formed in January 2010 in Morlaix and is now based in Vannes, southern Brittany.
I have a number of direct customers, mostly medium-sized companies in France. I also work with a handful of agencies in Paris, Brussels and London. Among my direct customers, I have been working as official translator for the Citroën Racing World Rally Team in its various guises in the World Rally Championship since 2012. I translated the English subtitles for Citroën Racing's film "19, allée des Maronniers", a 1 hour 20 minute feature released in December 2012 which looks back at the 2012 season and the incredible career of nine-time World Rally Champion, Sébastien Loeb. I also work regularly for Efectis France and UK, Prosys and InfoPro Digital.
I began working as a full-time professional translator in 2004, after taking a year-long translation diploma at the University of London in Paris.
Between 2004 and 2009, I spent four and half years working as a translator/proofreader, project manager and then team leader at Praetorius France sas. During my time at Praetorius, and since becoming a freelancer, I have worked for a variety of leading international manufacturers and service providers in France, Belgium, the UK, the USA and Canada on a wide range of technical and journalistic-style content for internal and external publication.
The companies and organisations include the likes of Achat Public, Alcan, Altran, Areva, BNP, Capgemini, Citroën, Daher, EDF-GDF, Efectis, France Telecom, Hilti, IRA, Manitou, Orange, Peugeot, Pierre Fabre Group, Publicis, RATP, Renault, Safran, Schneider, Société Générale, Suez Environnement, Total, Veolia and Vinci.
I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 1996 in French language and literature (II:i), working in housing/project management in London for three years and then banking in Paris for nearly four years.
