French translations

Welcome!

I am Sophie, a qualified and experienced Belgian translator living in Australia. I translate from English and Dutch into 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 work and travel, I decided to follow my passion for languages and started a career as a professional translator.

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.
