“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is really a large matter — it’s the difference between lightning and a lightning bug” Mark Twain
What Is Translation?
Translation is the communication of meaning from one language to another language.
This apparently simple definition actually contains very significant key words: 'communication' and 'meaning'.
Indeed, the right translation is not the closest one nor the most beautiful, it's simply the one that succeed in communicating the meaning of the original text in a new language.
What Is My Translation Process?
1. The first Task of any translation process is an accurate analysis of the original text in order to gain a comprehensive understanding.
For me it's extremely important to have an insight into the global meaning before starting the translation.
2. Translating is the core of the process.
I translate each part as if I am writing them in native French, seeking to keep the global meaning.
No word-for-word and No automatic translation.
3. The first Proofreading operation is done manually and with great care to correct mistakes and clumsy wording.
At this stage I also reformulate each part in order to produce native-like content.
4. For the Editing task I use an automatic professional spelling/grammar/style checker (Antidote 9) to eliminate remaining issues.
At this stage, the text takes its final shape and if required by the client, I do all the necessary formatting (layout, pdf, word, etc.).
5. Before the delivery, I do the final proofreading and I check the quality of the result.
6. The ultimate task is the delivery of the translated material.

Why a Freelance Translator instead of an Agency?
Value: Because there's no intermediary, you pay only for what you need. That is, the translation.
Consistency: One translator dealing your texts means more quality in the long term
Confidentiality: You give the access to your sensitive documents to one person only
Communication: You always speak directly with the person in charge with your material
As an experienced native French translator, I can translate all of documents or web pages.
I can also help you by proofreading and rewriting text that has already been translated.
But I don't just translate and proofread your document: I reformulate, adapt and rewrite it so it looks like a authentic French document.
