About me


After 15 years of work in nuclear and pharmaceutical industry, exportation, IT services and commercial relationships, I have acquired a strong knowledge of international trade, means of transportation, computer hardware and software, creation and management of websites and communication with customers, suppliers and end users.

I am also deeply concerned by environmental matters, I have developed a wide culture on ecology, ecosystems preservation, fight against global warming, animal and plant spieces protection by researches, readings, personal actions and state of mind.

Ideologically close to environment, veganism is an efficient way to preserve our planet and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Animal husbandry on the planet scale is the first factor of gas emissions, before transports and industry, we can thus easily understand that farming must be taken into account as seriously as other major pollutants.

Since many years I examine the actions, communications and informations of international and french animal protection groups, which enables me to know their communication habits, vocabulary, style… quite well.

Thanks to these varied experiences, the mastery of these fields and large knowledges on the subjects, I am able to offer high quality translation services.
