What people say

Home: Testimonials

"I needed to get a French death certificate translated for probate purposes and found Carol after a little internet search. Carol was quick to respond to my email and was able to promise the work within a very acceptable timescale.  Carol was good at communicating with me and delivered on her promise and at a very reasonable cost. If only everything else to do with probate and other officialdom was as easy as this! Thanks Carol."

How I can help you

Communicating clearly with your customers - both internal and external - is key, and this is especially true when the content needs to be translated. A translation must be accurate, of course, but it should also be fluent and natural and in the appropriate register to suit the readership. 

If this is what you're looking for, let me help you. With elegant French to English translations perfectly tailored to every situation, you can rest assured that your message will be conveyed eloquently, accurately and clearly.

Timely delivery is also important, as is good communication during an assignment, so I offer a prompt, friendly and efficient service.

I am a UK-based French to English translator specialising mainly in the commercial and marketing sector. I have a particular interest in sustainable development, urban nature, the green economy, and protecting biodiversity. I also work in the legal, arts and leisure fields.

In addition to over twenty years' experience as a freelance translator, I also have twelve years' prior business experience in project management, marketing and travel operations within a European corporate environment.
