French to English Technical Translation

This post is also available in: Français (French)

I offer French to English Technical Translation of documents and video subtitling, specializing in Supply Chain Management and Information Systems, and general subjects including marketing and tourism.

I started out as a Business Analyst Developer in the UK in 1994 after studying business information technology at Paris V and Brighton universities.

I moved to France in 2000, where I spent the first four years in the purchasing department of a large PC manufacturer, working with buyers to manage data and produce purchasing indicators.

In 2004, I set out as a freelancer, initially in PC maintenance and then as a video technician digitizing analogue media. I started to take on translation work in 2012 and since 2018, have specialized in technical translation and video subtitling.
