WHO AM I?

Born in France, I led a typical childhood, spending holidays in the country... and yes, the cliché was true, we did ride to the bakery each day for fresh bread! I don't think anyone could have predicted then that I would one day live in Australia.

After studying Applied Languages at the Lyon III University for four years, I started working in the corporate world, gaining experience in companies big and small. This experience proved invaluable when it came to starting my own business and understanding the needs of my clients.

Fast forward a few years, I met my Australian husband-to-be in the South of France where we spent a few years making the most of the wonderful landscape and lifestyle, before relocating to Australia. A daughter and a dream later, I decided to combine my experience, knowledge, entrepreneurial spirit, and love of French language and culture, and start my own business; helping small companies and entrepreneurs (including webentrepreneurs, mumpreneurs, solopreneurs) to reach French-speaking audiences, foster partnerships, and open up new markets in France by translating their legal and business documents, as well as their website content, into French.

To enhance my corporate experience, I also studied English-to-French legal translation, to ensure that these contracts, user terms and other legal documents would be accurately translated.
