INTERPRETING
Are you looking for a French-English interpreter in Auckland, New Zealand? My area of expertise is the medical & pharmaceutical sectors, but I am happy to discuss your needs.
TRANSLATION
I translate from all variants of French into my native English. Having lived and worked in the United States, Canada, & New Zealand, I am able to adapt your French content to your English audience (British, American, Canadian).
TRANSCREATION
Marketing material requires a different approach, as the content required is often culture specific based on regional references. I can ensure that your creativity & ideas are retained & conveyed in a way that will resonate with your audience.
EDITING
Do you need a quality check of text that has already been translated? I provide editing & proofreading services & can identify omissions, typos, mis-translations, errors & regional inconsistencies (UK vs US terminology) while ensuring content fluidity.
