I'm a French Canadian translator with a strong professional background in public relations, communications, marketing and customer service, more particularly in the fields of: arts and culture, sports and tourism. My 10 years of experience as a communication manager give me a precise understanding of the terminology and writing processes related to public relations.
Originally from Montreal, I learned English while living in Toronto for a period of three years. My passion for languages and cultural discoveries later took me to beautiful Costa Rica, where I am now based.
Hello! My name is Charles and I am a native French to English translator with a Master's Degree in Translation Studies, a Bachelor's degree in French literature and about 2 years of English-French translation, editing and proofreading experience.
After having worked for a year and a half as a marketing translator at Federation CJA, an important Jewish philanthropic organization based in Montreal, I have recently launched my own freelance translation business, working with such organizations as Weizmann Canada, CLV Group and Federation CJA. Pursuing ATA certification in English to French translation, I am constantly trying to improve my linguistics skills. I even plan on being able to offer Spanish into French translation services within a year or two!
When I am not busy translating, I like to read, travel, play hockey and hang out with my German Sheppard.
Looking forward to collaborating with you!
