Translation requires a great deal more than just language skills. A translator must be able to fully understand how a person or business wishes to convey their message in the target language accurately and elegantly. To achieve this, a translator must have an in-depth understanding of both cultures and make the necessary adjustments in order for the translated text to read just like an original.

 

Always working with the audience in mind

When I translate I aim to: -

  • fully absorb the sentiment of the message to create clear, engaging content that speaks to the reader
  • consider carefully the choice of words that will resonate with the target audience
  • think about the tone of voice required and how it will be different for a message to employees, customers, prospects or other stakeholders
  • keep abreast of continuous changes in language and vocabulary

 

Always aware of business imperatives

My experience working in several world class companies has taught me that businesses: -

  • are under time pressure and need quick turnaround
  • can’t afford to get their communications wrong
  • can’t afford to compromise on quality
  • need to trust their suppliers to deliver on quality and on time, every time

 

Playing my part in customer retention and acquisition

I understand the vital importance of carefully translating documents to help companies retain their existing customers and win new ones. This is why:-

  • I keep abreast of fast evolving language used in marketing and technology development
  • I keep up to date with new concepts and new trends in expressing ideas without losing the character of the French language
  • I look to ensure that my translations reflect well on the modern forward-looking organisations I work for

 

In summary

I take pride in working quickly to the highest standard and in keeping my customers informed at every stage. I carefully assess every new job to ensure I can deliver on my promises.
