Résumé

After graduating from university in 1991, I took a sabbatical to work as a volunter for a charity. That experience turned into a nine-year career successively as co-founder of an international aid organization (called The Serious Road Trip or TSRT), then head of mission for TSRT during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina and finally founder/director of TSRT's French branch, TSRT-CHF.

In 2000, I went on to study translation at ESIT (École Supérieure d'Interprètes et de Traducteurs) in Paris. I graduated with another Master's degree and almost immediately afterwards, in November 2003, found a job as an in-house translator in Glasgow, Scotland, with one of the world’s leading intellectual property attorney firms, Murgitroyd & Company.

In December 2005, I went completely freelance (I had been translating as a freelancer part-time since May 2002) and now have over 15 years of experience in technical and legal translation. I work on a regular basis for a number of clients ranging from intellectual property firms to international organizations such as OECD, FIFA and UCI, without forgetting individuals on a case by case basis.

The services I offer include translation and revision work from English, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Italian and Spanish into French. Reaching the highest possible degree of satisfaction with my clients is of utmost importance to me. So is the ambition to continuously improve, both as a translator/reviser and as a business partner. I therefore leave no stone unturned, at every stage of the translation/revision process and more generally in my approach of the job, to meet those aims.

So feel free to get in touch with me for a question, a quote, a piece of advice… or just to say hello :-)

In-house translator and reviser

MURGITROYD & COMPANY , Glasgow

De Novembre 2003 à Décembre 2005

A couple of months after graduating in technical, economic and editorial translation, I joined Murgitroyd & Company, a worldwide leader in intellectual property, patents and trade marks. I began as a trainee translator and after six months, was recognized as a fully-fledged translator.

In just over two years, Murgitroyd & Company provided me with invaluable experience not only in translating patents and legal texts, but also in understanding and fulfilling the requirements of business, particularly the legal industry. Given the company's rich and diverse client portfolio, I also discovered - and/or became more knowledgeable in - a wide range of industrial techniques and technologies.

Last but not least, at Murgitroyd & Company, I certainly developed thorough working practices together with a near-obsessive eye for the detail. After those two years, I felt confident that I had enough strings to my bow to go it alone. So I did...
