what does translating mean?

Not everyone can claim to be a translator. Indeed, translating is more than being fluent in two different languages - a good translator must have developed a certain technique through both their education and experience.


Being a French native speaker, I can translate from English into French. My knowledge of the English language also enables me to translate from French into English.

I will do my best to keep with the style and tone of the source text, all the while using the right terminology. Moreover, I will make sure that the translated text is aligned with the target audience (localisation) and use idiomatic expressions, so that it reads exactly as an original text.

Finally, one of my co-workers or myself will edit and proofread the translation.
