With experience ranging from modal music to radiocommunications and to translation studies, rest assured to find me a flexible, highy adaptable interpreter – from English into French and vice-versa.
Simultaneous interpreting: real-time translating for conferences – behind-the-scenes or in chuchotage (whispering the translation to one person or a small group)
Consecutive interpreting: for small- to medium-size groups, translating chunks of the speaker's speech into a small audience's native language
Liaison interpreting: for small- to medium-size groups, a more relaxed, conversationnal approach to interpreting. Ideal for training courses or informal business meetings
Rates vary according to the type of interpreting required and the technicity of the subject matter, please contact me for your free quote.
