Hi! Welcome to my profile page.

I am a NAATI CERTIFIED FRENCH TO ENGLISH TRANSLATOR with a broad experience in ENGLISH PROOFREADING, AUSTRALIAN LOCALISATIONS and ESL TEACHING. I am also a member of AUSIT, Australia's professional association for translators and interpreters.

My main areas of expertise are:

COSMETICS & PERFUMERY (training, marketing, websites, packaging and subtitling), MARKETING and TRAVEL/TOURISM.

While the majority of my clients are in the luxury beauty industry, I am competent in working in a wide range of fields and love the variety that this brings.

I strive to make all my translations read like originals.

Living in Sydney, I am also 8 hours ahead of many parts of Europe, and even further ahead of US time zones. This can be an advantage for work that needs to be ready "overnight" or shortly after a weekend.


I have spent nearly 10 years working, studying and living in French-speaking countries, and also hold a 4 year Bachelor of Languages Degree majoring in French and Japanese.

My background in English teaching at universities and language schools in France, Japan and Australia has enabled me to consolidate my command of grammar and develop a keen eye for detail.

After having obtained my professional translator qualification (NAATI), I am now devoted to being a full-time freelance translator, proofreader and localiser who, despite this, has not shrugged off the travel bug!
