French translations adapted to your needs

What type of translation do you need?

Do you need to have Australian legal or personal documents translated into French?

I translate your legal or personal documents into French so that your French contacts, the courts or the administration, can deal with them, and advance your project. You let me know how the translation is going to be used (e.g. in a court case, sent to French legal professionals or to the French administration, as a work in progress) and I adapt the translation accordingly.

Do you want to have your Australian web content translated into French?

I translate your content from English into French so that your French audience can understand them, and act on them, more easily. You let me know who will be reading your French content and I adapt the translation accordingly. 

Generally speaking, translating your content or documents from English into French aims at helping you:

  • reach a French audience,
  • send a legal document to French contacts,
  • get a visa,
  • get married, do business in France,

for example. You may have your own reasons to request English-to-French translations. 

You’re writing in French, and you would like your French text copyedited?

I can copyedit the French text you’ve written to make it more engaging and impactful. You let me know who is going to read your French text, in which circumstances, and I adapt the revision accordingly.

Is it for a website? Do you want to sell something? To share a message? To send a resume or an application in French? Or just an email to French contacts?

Who am I?

My name is Caroline Sanders. I am French, and a NAATI-certified professional translator. I have also formally trained as an English-to-French legal translator. And I enjoy making Australian content available in French.

With my Australian husband and our Franco-Australian daughter, we live immersed in two languages and two cultures. This is challenging – and a lot of fun.

« If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.

If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. »

French copyediting

You probably use software for simple copyediting, i.e. checking spelling, grammar, punctuation and syntax at sentence level.
I can help you make your text more engaging and impactful, or more concise, depending on what you need. In short, adapted to its intended use.
What is the purpose of the text you're writing? Let me know what you need and we'll come up with a solution. And if you're not really sure, let me know, and we can arrange a time to discuss your needs. Read more about French copyediting

Translations fit for purpose are adapted
to what you want to achieve, and
to what your French audience needs.
