French translations

Welcome!

I am Sophie, a qualified and experienced Belgian translator living in Australia. I translate from English and Dutch to my first language, French.

About me

Growing up in Belgium, a multilingual country, with both my parents being language teachers, I was lucky to be able to learn languages at an early age.

After graduating in languages and management, I worked in the marketing and communications industry for several years, first as a marketing coordinator and then later as an advertising account manager.

In 2016, I left Belgium to travel around Australia and, after a year or two of travels and odd jobs, I decided to follow my passion for languages and started a career as a professional translator.

Services

I offer translation, editing, localisation and transcription services.

My rates vary depending on the level of specialisation or technicality of the source text, the source language and the format of the source text.

I pride myself on delivering 100% of my translations on time and always replying in a timely manner. I have high attention to detail and strive for excellence.

Overnight services

It is 4 or 5 PM and you would like to translate a text by the next day, 9 AM? No worries, I live in Australia (GMT+8) so I work while you sleep! Overnight translations will be in your inbox when you get to work.

Experience

I specialise in marketing, HR and business translations.

Some of my larger translation projects include:

  • Market research surveys (40k+ words)
  • Internal and external communications for an electronic components manufacturer
  • Product descriptions for a distillery
  • Teaching materials for a university history class
  • External communications for a B2B service provider in the banking sector
