Services & Consultation
I am a freelance editor, writer and translator, primarily for the creative, knowledge-based, and high-tech industries in Montreal and around the world. I also occasionally advise artists, community organizations, galleries, and museums across Canada to make their work more accessible and inclusive. A long-time blog writer as well as a professional content writer, I also offer personalized content writing and blog consulting for individuals, collectives, and brands. Here's a detailed breakdown of my services:
Translation & Localization Services
English — French Translation
I specialize particularly in translating creative and literary content for creative, knowledge-based and technology sectors. I work with individuals, small teams and large organizations to support them in their communications in both French and English.
In addition to creative translation, I have a lot of experience working with and translating technical texts related to computer science, web design, feminism, as well as queer/trans medical and accessibility issues.
Since 2019, I have worked with independent video game production companies on the localization of their games for North American French, both as quality assurance as part of a larger team or as a translator.
Especially if you're an indie currently developing a project and would like a quote for localizing your videogame to North American French, I would be delighted to hear from you.
Linguistic Revision & Proofreading Services
Comparative Revision and Editing (English — French)
From assisting fellow translators in ensuring the quality of their work or helping my clients with the linguistic revision of texts that have already been professionally translated, I have been editing and proofreading academic, marketing and communications materials to ensure their effectiveness in both French and English since 2016.
Please note that I generally refuse to work with machine-translated text.
Proofreading & Copyediting
Over the years, I’ve been asked to help ensure the written quality of a very wide variety of materials, from postgraduate dissertations to newsletters or copy destined for social media. On top of tightening grammar and catching typos, I seek to ensure that the writing is clear, inclusive, and, when appropriate, accessible for the widest possible audience.
I’ve done a fair share of content writing for blogs and newsletters, even sometimes while emulating my clients’ personal writing styles. If you're looking for a writer who can convey the quality of your brand and bring compelling and memorable value to your end users and customers, do get it touch.
Depending on your content needs, I can also create click-worthy text for Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Tumblr, and other social media channels, especially when cross-promoting podcasts, blog posts, books, and YouTube channels.
One’s writing should be as unique as their voice, and on top of being a perfect space for curating one's brand, blogging is a perfect avenue for developing that voice!
I am sometimes called to assist individuals on how to get their own short or long-term blogging projects off the ground, often in order to support other areas of their career such as speaking, podcasting, and more.
Feminist and Nonbinary-Inclusive French Writing Strategies
« Les anciens, Monsieur, sont les anciens, et nous sommes les gens de maintenant. » Molière (Le Malade imaginaire, II, 6)
If you are looking to learn more about rédaction épicène, feminization writing strategies, and newer nonbinary-inclusive writing strategies, please get in touch! These areas represent an area of writing and language that I find intellectually fascinating as well as extremely personally relevant.
