Literary & Editorial Translation

About me
Pauline Suarez Perut

I am an independent translator and work with both my native languages, English and French. I specialize in literary translation, academic translation and video game localization, but my wide range of language skills allows me to adapt to a variety of industries. I am currently based in France after living in several different countries, including the United States, Ireland, the Philippines, Bahrain and Qatar.


My professional experience as a translator may be recent, but my personal experience began at twelve years old, when I translated my first book. It continued from one odd translation job to another, until I acquired professional techniques during my studies. As an alumni of École Normale Supérieure, Université Paris Diderot and Trinity College Dublin, I now master translation techniques for a wide range of texts.


My passion for languages will guarantee the best translation suited to your needs.

Do you provide sworn/certified translation?

I do not provide technical, legal or medical translations. I specialize in narration and all things cultural or academic, and can extend my skills to certain businesses and industries.

Do you use machine translate such as Google Translate?

I do not use Google Translate or online translation engines: the linguistic quality of such translations is very low and I strive to protect the privacy of my clients' data.

I do use Antidote 10 for reviewing and proofreading, as well as dictionaries such as the Robert & Collins.

I am the author of all my translation work.
