Advisory Translation Services Inc. - Your French Communications Partner
Biographie
Translation is my passion as I enjoy
bridging the language gap between the
English and French cultures. I have over
25 years of translation experience from
English into French, of which five years
were spent in the publishing industry.
I have been self-employed since 1991
and as such I have had the opportunity
to work on various prestigious projects.
For instance, I was the only freelance
translator whose services were retained
for the G8 Summit in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada, working directly with the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police on
security-related materials and matters.
