...your independent, experienced, and perfectionist French-to-English translator
Hi! Pleased to meet you.
I am a French-to-English translator specialized in visual art.
I started in 2007, when I passed my NAATI-certification exams.
But really, the story began long before. In 1994 I found out what a translator was, and I wanted to be one.
Since then I have lived in France and the United States, settled back home in Australia, and translated my way through art school. Now I get to translate for museums and art publishers.
- NAATI-certified for French-to-English translations, since 2007,
- English native speaker,
- I have a BA in Language Studies and an Advanced Diploma in Visual Art,
- I collaborate with audiovisual whizz-kid Cissi Tsang in Collapsing Time,
- deadlines complete me (no really).
