As a Classicist, translating literature is one of my biggest pleasures. Unfortunately, one of the hardest to come by, outside the academic world or the pro bono challenges of cultural associations. As a specialist in Ancient Greek tragedy, I have found that translating for modern theatre is equally fascinating. As a comics addict, I would be more than happy to venture in the field of translating speech balloons!

Strong literary and linguistic background thanks to my Masters degree in literary and general translation. I love to discover new ways of writing.
Parallel to my more "pragmatic" translations jobs, I have expertise in historical fictions and non-fictions translation and in general literature.
I mainly worked on unpublished books for now.

Eager to find original content to be translated as if it was originally written in French.

My interest in books and literature began at a very early age and developed along with a talent for languages and the written word. I discovered a particular flair for literary translation whilst at university studying Joint Honours French and German and, upon completing my degree, was offered a postgraduate teaching post on this basis. I am now especially interested in developing this area of expertise in my translation business though for the moment I have no specific experience to offer.
