Translation is about communication, it’s about people.

high 5 between two business partners

It’s about the people who want to share their message to a French audience. And it’s about the French readers who will better understand that message.

The translation of legal documents is also about people. It may be about people involved in a court case; about people who want to get married or about a family that want to move on after a divorce; it may be about someone who gave instructions about their estate. It may be about small businesses who want to expand their area of influence, and about legal practitioners who want to communicate with their French counterparts.

My translations act as the bridge that links Australian and French people in a specific situation. Facilitating communication between them, I enjoy helping them move forward with their project

Building bridges

I have been living in Australia since 2002, and I remain deeply French at heart. With an Australian husband and a Franco-Australian daughter, building bridges between Australia and France, between the languages and the cultures, is an everyday adventure! This is what has nurtured and sustained my interest in translation. Facilitating communication between Australian and French people – starting right at home with my family, and expanding with my clients!

Translation of Australian legal documents

When I arrived in Australia, I became intrigued by the differences between the Australian and the French legal systems. That has led me to study English-to-French legal translation.

When I’m not working,

I enjoy

spending time with my family, practising yoga, walking, reading (from novels to books on translation, entrepreneurship, sustainability, transpersonal development), listening to podcasts, keeping abreast with what is happening in France, and simply enjoying life.

And spending time in France while getting a full cultural bath.

That includes visiting friends, family and places I cherish, of course. But also checking new magazines, new shops, raiding my favourite bookshops, enjoying a French croissant with a coffee, making the most of the French food I love, and just walking in the streets taking in my home country. 

Caroline is very professional and continuously seeks to update her skills and knowledge as a translator.
