Translation of Australian legal documents into French

Qualifications • Reliability • Confidentialiy

Helping legal practitioners get the documents they need
professionally translated to French,
NAATI-certified if needed.

Contracts, agreements, general terms and conditions, powers of attorney, affidavits, will, personal documents… 

Legal documents are part of our daily life, and their translation requires a specific set of skills to ensure that the result is fit for purpose.

As a qualified legal translator, I translate contracts, other business law documents, deeds, and some court and family law documents, from English into French. As a NAATI-certified translator, I can certify the translations I undertake.

 

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

 

My credentials are listed below. You can also find more information about the qualifications that allow me to translate these types of documents on the About page.

A few questions worth considering

When you need legal translations, it’s a good idea to think about the following issues:

  • Does the translation need to be NAATI-certified? 

If that’s the case, just mention it when you send me the document to be translated. You can also have a look at the page on Certified Translations for more information.

  • Who is the intended audience for the translation?

Is it for the French administration? A court of law? Potential partners? Clients? Website users? Let me know because official translations generally need to mirror the layout of the original.

  • What is the timeframe for the translation?

Legal translations tend to be urgent, but they aren’t the type of translation you want to rush. Let me know what your needs are and I’ll see how I can best accommodate them. 

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.

Credentials

As a French native living in Australia, I have first-hand experience of the two legal systems. This excited my interest and lead me to study English-to-French legal translation. I have since become a qualified English-to-French legal translator and I continue to deepen my knowledge.

I am also a NAATI-certified professional translator and a member of AUSIT (the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators).
