If a human is reading your content, why let a machine translate it?

Your content deserves better.

Don’t trust your content into the hands of any translation services provider. Leave it to a specialist to translate your wording into compelling copy that will resonate with your audience.

Without translation, I would be limited to the borders of my own country. The translator is my most important ally. He introduces me to the world.   – Italo Calvino

Testimonials

Rachael Holborn – What3Words

I’ve worked with Frédérique on two projects, and during both she made my job very easy! Her work is consistent, thorough and punctual. She takes care with detail, doesn’t hesitate to ask when she has questions, or to let you know when she’s noted something you should be aware of. I can certainly recommend working with Frédérique, and already looking forward to doing so again in the future.

Francis Dion – Alpha CCO

Frédérique has impeccable writing skills in both French and English. She works very well with clients, she’s sensitive about their deadlines, transparent about her schedule and she delivers on time. She’s also eager to learn their field’s specific vocabulary and keen on respecting their personal voice and tone. The work she did for me included translating professional and personal blogs from English to French and from French to English, as well as proofreading my original texts in either languages. I can say that my own writing skills are better today thanks to her work and comments. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Magdalena Ochmańska – MD Online

Our cooperation with Frédérique on proofreading Canadian-French content lasts for about a year now. At MD Online, we’re very happy that she agreed to work with us on projects with a short turnaround. Her attention to details and good understanding of the language is exactly what we need and what we rely on. Highly recommended!

Simon Carreck – DesignWrite

Having worked closely and constantly with Frédérique for over a year, I have no hesitation in recommending her not just for her translation expertise, but also for her attention to detail and excellent communication skills – no matter what the language.

James Tod – The British Hamper Company

Frédérique is a highly skilled content writer who is able to create engaging blog content which is complimented by stunning photography. Whilst working at The British Hamper Company, Frédérique also planned and managed several successful social media campaigns. I highly recommend Frédérique for her organised and creative approach towards online content projects.
