I set up my translation company Translation Spirit after 15 years working in the nuclear and pharmaceutical industries, export and IT services, with the aim of combining my passion for languages with my professional activity. This experience has given me a solid knowledge of IT (hardware, software, applications, security, network), website creation and management, quality, safety and environment, international trade and communication with customers, suppliers and end-users. I have been working as a freelance translator since 2017.
Before becoming a full-time translator, I held the following positions:
- IT manager (internal hardware/software, telephony, printing solutions, user support, supply orders Dell, HP and others),
- Executive assistant for QSHE and Large Projects departments in nuclear industry (piping solutions),
- Online stores manager (pet and bio products),
- Technical assistant in gas power services,
- Account manager in IT (IBM and HP products, maintenance services),
- International after sales assistant in pharmaceutical industry (purification technologies),
- Sales management assistant in paper and carton manufacturing industry (self-adhesive products).
I have thus been able to develop my quality culture, my technical knowledge in many fields and my versatility, demonstrating curiosity and rigour in each of my activities. I put this experience to good use in translation, with the primary objective of customer satisfaction and optimal quality.
I am also deeply concerned by environmental matters, I have developed a wide culture in the fields of ecology, sustainable development, ecosystems preservation, fight against global warming, animal and plant species protection by researches, readings, personal actions and state of mind.
In terms of environment, I am interested in efficient ways to preserve our planet and lower greenhouse gas emissions. For example, industrial scale animal husbandry 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.
Thanks to my varied experiences and trainings, in particular in technical translation, the mastery and knowledge of these fields, I am able to offer high quality translation services to agencies, companies and individuals.
