Education and Training

I completed my PhD in Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas in 2015. My dissertation, "Translation in the Digital Age: Reconstructing Montaigne's 'Du Repentir'" includes a hypertext translation of an essay by Michel de Montaigne. I also hold a DiplĂ´me approfondi de langue française (DALF C1), an MA in Journalism from New York University, and an MFA in Creative Writing from Rosemont College.

News/Media Translation

Whether you're looking to have a news article or interview translated or you're looking to attract American readers to your online publication, I can help. My recent experience includes translation of newsletters for cultural and governmental organizations and editing of translated news for a European wire service.

Research Translation
and Editing

If you work with research-related texts--monographs, journal articles, conference papers, white papers, and scientific reports--as an author or editor, you know the importance of domain expertise.
Thanks to my educational and professional background, I can translate or edit your text to meet the high standards of the research community.

Technical Translation

My recent technical translation projects include white papers, technical manuals, and scientific reports in the fields of medicine, biochemistry, engineering, and environmental science and technology. With more than 20 years of experience creating, editing, and producing websites, I can make your online content shine for your target audience, whether it is translated from French or written from scratch in English.

Personal and Corporate Documents

When it comes to personal and corporate documents, nothing is more important than accuracy. I provide certified French-to-English translations of birth, marriage, divorce, and death certificates, academic transcripts and diplomas, corporate correspondence, financial statements, and regulatory documents.
