Technical Translation: I have worked in a fairly wide spread of industries including industrial supply chain. Most of my work at the moment is Technical Translation since the rates are better! I hold a degree in Business Information Systems from Paris V and Brighton Universities. Please find below my CV which details my database analysis experience from 1992 to 2004.

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

Video capture and editing: I ran a small media business in France (2009-2018) capturing glass plates, slides, Super 8, magnetic and digitalI often did family video editing but also commemorative work such as DVDs for the John Fogerty Fan club France.I filmed and edited a local show in 2013 and composed a one-hour documentary about the changing countryside (no budget)

So I have diverse experience both in France and the UK. I enjoy transcription and subtitling, proofing and translation in both French and English. I hope that my profile is of interest …
