As a French native living in Australia, I have lived with the two legal systems. I struggled at first to understand the differences, the concepts and the terminology. This triggered my interest and lead me to study English-to-French legal translation – first formally then on a never-ending exciting journey.

I enjoy helping legal practitioners, small businesses and individuals through the translation of the legal documents they need in French.

Series of English and French books useful for legal translation

You need the French translation of:

  • a contract or other business law documents,
  • a will or other family law documents,
  • a deed,
  • some court documents.

As a French qualified legal translator, I translate:

  • Australian legal documents
  • into French
  • for legal practitioners,
  • small businesses
  • and individuals.
  • NAATI certification when needed.

I live in Australia (Adelaide) and I have decided to mainly focus on the translation of Australian legal documents.

To find out how I can help with your French translations, send me an email to:

Examples of legal documents that I translate to French:

    • Contracts, e.g. Contract of Sale of Goods, Supply Agreement, Employee Agreement, License Agreement
    • Confidentiality Letter, Privacy Policy
    • General Terms and Conditions, User Terms and Conditions, User Agreement
    • Deeds, e.g. Power of Attorney, Last Will and Testament (and Probate), Affidavit
    • Business Law documents, e.g. Articles of Association or Legal Constitution, Minutes, General Meeting Report
    • Family Law documents, e.g. Parenting Order, Divorce Order, Consent Orders
    • Some Court documents, e.g. Writ of Summons, Statement of Claim

If the document you need to translate to French is not listed, please email it to me and I’ll let you know what I can do.

Qualifications, experience, quality assurance processes, respect for the reader of the translation, and for the French language, are my building blocks to deliver a French translation fit for purpose.

I also offer translations for information, from English into French, and from French into English. This type of translation is not certified, and is useful when the focus is on the content, and when the form is not so important.

Who is the translation for?

  • Is it for the judiciary?  For a notary, a bank? The translation will then mirror the layout of the source document, and may need to be NAATI-certified.
  • Or is it for website users, customers, partners, legal practitioners?

How is it going to be used?

  • Is it part of a court case?
  • Before or during negotiation?
  • During dispute resolution?
  • Or is it going to be published on a website?

Does it need to be NAATI-certified?

If that’s the case, please mention it when you send me the document to be translated. The layout of the translation will roughly mirror the source document. More information on the page on Certified Translations.

Time frame?

When do you need your translation for? For a specific date or event? Let me know. Otherwise, what would be your ideal time frame?

Confidentiality

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

Your work was excellent, fast, and you are a pleasure to work with.

[at the time] Project Officer, Entrepreneurship Commercialisation & Innovation Centre (ECIC), The University of Adelaide
