Why hire a professional translator?
Because no AI will ever replace human experience, sensibility, or judgment, entrusting your work to a professional translator ensures that none of your content and ideas are lost from one language to the next. Translation goes beyond finding the mere equivalents for each word—it’s also about finding the right tone, the right way to tell a story, present research or defend ideas, adapting to your readership or audience and conveying meaning in the right context without leaving anything behind. This is something no algorithm can do.
I am a native bilingual English and French speaker and have lived in several countries over the course of my life. I combine this personal experience with my hard-earned skills for 100% human translation, every time.

My Work Ethics as a Translator
No automatic translation, ever
I do not use Google Translate nor any CAT software: the linguistic quality of such translations is often very low and I strive to protect the privacy of my clients’ data. CAT software is simply not meant for translations other than partial, technical translations. I do use Antidote 10 for reviewing and proofreading, as well as dictionaries such as the Robert & Collins and the Cambridge Dictionary.
I am the author of all my translation work, and I guarantee 100% human translations.
Your text, your vision, your ideas
As a translator, it is essential for me to stay true to the original text’s content, ideas, story and writing choices as much as possible. My mission is to get all your words across from one language to the next, without any losses or appropriation.
Adapting to audience & readership
I work hard to keep my translations accurate, precise and as authentic as possible. For this to be a success, it is equally important to know when to adapt and adjust to readerships, audiences, and context—something no AI will ever be able to do.
