I am a qualified professional translator (English into French) with over 10 years in translation and localization. After having worked as an in-house translator and French language manager with a major LSP in the UK, I moved back to France and started as freelance translator in 2011.

My areas of expertise include consumer electronics, data visualization, BI, data security, education and business marketing.
