About me

Michele Rosen, PhD

ATA-certified French to English translator and editor

I’m a professional linguist, editor, and content strategist with a 25-year track record of meeting tight deadlines and delivering polished, audience-focused content.

I’ve been fascinated by the intersection of language and technology since 1996, when I left my job as a daily newspaper reporter to become an editor for a technology trade magazine.

I love using my training and experience to help clients achieve their communication goals.

Global news websites and publishers, technology companies, book publishers, online content producers, media production companies, academic writers
