Polished, audience-focused content in English

A strategic investment in your global presence. Content that stands out from the crowd can help you:

  • reach new audiences
  • engage with customers and clients 
  • strengthen your relationship with your audience

To create content that builds trust and goodwill, you need a partner with a deep understanding of the cultural and linguistic idiosyncrasies of the many different varieties, styles, and registers of the English language. A language expert who knows whether your audience is more likely to use the Urban Dictionary or the Oxford English Dictionary.

Hello,
I’m Michele Rosen

ATA-certified French to English translator and editor

I’m a French to English translator certified by the American Translators Association. I’m an editor and content strategist with more than 25 years of experience in newspaper, magazine, book, and online publishing. I’m a former university instructor, curriculum developer, and academic publishing specialist, and I have a doctorate in the humanities.

I’ve been creating and editing online content since the earliest days of the web. During the past 25 years, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the cultural and linguistic idiosyncrasies of audiences in the technology and media/publishing sectors.

I’d like to be your reliable, trustworthy, accurate, perceptive, deadline-oriented partner for improving your English-language content.
