Joyce Humbert

Description

I earned a a B.A. “with distinction” in French and Modern Languages at York University in Toronto and won an award for academic excellence. I also attended Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario where I completed a Certificate in Translation.

I have many years of experience in translation, proofreading, editing and writing. I spent many years with a large retail corporation translating from English into French for the Québec market and occasionally French to English for special projects and overflow. I lived in France for a year and travel there every few years to visit relatives. I have translated a wide variety of material: articles for websites, materials for Employee Assistance Programs, marketing communications, packaging, in-store signage, advertising and online brochures, product descriptions, how-to articles, emails, contests and navigation. Subject matter has included gardening, painting, lawnmowers, camping equipment, tires and other auto parts, bicycles, fishing equipment, cosmetics, electronics, food, renewable energy, general newsletters on health and more. I have also written extensively in English about music and translated musicians' websites into French.
