Technical Translation

I have translated documents in a fairly wide spread of industries including industrial supply chain. I followed an 18-month course in supply chain at MGCM, Paris when working at NEC Computers purchasing department in Angers, managing the purchasing database. I had a first-hand view of the challenges of running an assembly plant, the stakes of purchasing, procurement and marketing. Most of my work is in Technical Translation.

I hold a degree in Business Information Systems from Paris V and Brighton Universities.

Audiovisual translation

I have six years’ experience in video and audio transcription. I worked on several subtitling projects for: Com Translations (now Straker) and France Television, Lylo Media Group for masterclasses with Eric Emmanuel Schmidt and Kevin Staut.

Example translations on the subject of video taken from my own activity as a video technician, editor and providing digital transfer services:

Management translation

Here is a selection of articles on various management techniques and methods, focused on information systems and tools, translated from both English to French and French to English.

  • A selection of Management techniques and methods including Eisenhower, and Getting Things Done (GTD) – a sensible everyday method for management
  • Ayoa task management tool – great for turning mindmaps into task plans, sequencing project activity and creating an operational GANNT chart. Interfaces with Evernote.
  • Evernote used a business library – store your important documents, calculations and notes in Evernote
  • Mindmapping as a management technique – mindmapping is great to define the context of a problem, business area, function or any subject on which you’d like to focus.
  • Systems Analysis and Case Studies described in UML – a visual ‘language’ to help describe systems functionality
