Let’s build bridges between Australia and France

Which service?Contact me

Are you wondering what is the best way to have your documents translated into French? Legal documents, your website content, articles, posts, or even personal documents needed for the French administration or courts.

I am French, a NAATI-certified professional translator, formally trained as an English-to-French legal translator, and I have been living in South Australia since 2002.

With every passing year in Australia, I’ve become more and more attached and attuned to the French language. Translating my clients’ messages into French to help them communicate better with their French audience is my way of building bridges between Australia and France.

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.

Translations for publication from English to French (marketing, editorial)

This is what you publish (whatever the medium) and what you communicate about. In this case, the focus is on your French audience taking your message to heart; it is about content and form. Read more

Translation of Australian legal documents into French

Who are you communicating with? The judiciary? In this case, I'll mirror the layout of the source document. Or is it website users, customers, partners, or legal practitioners? The translation will take your audience into account. Read more

Translations for information English <> French

A translation for information focuses mainly on content and less on form. As it is not polished, it is not suited for publication, nor is it certified. Read more
From English into French or vice versa.

French copy-editing

Copyediting implies checking spelling, grammar, punctuation and syntax at sentence level - no significant rewriting of the text. Read more

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

You will find information about my qualifications and credentials on the About page.


As a member of AUSIT, I am bound by the principle of confidentiality, regardless of whether I undertake the translation or not, so you can rest assured that your documents will remain confidential. You can read my Privacy Policy here.
