A cataloger-at-heart, I'm interested in the many ways to connect bibliographic information / metadata / collection description to the end-user. In a way, this is quite similar to translation: bringing together a message and an end-user who doesn't speak the original language of a document.

In 2015, I started a freelance English-to-French translator/proofreader career. I'm now focusing on humanities-related translation.
I completed the NYU Certificate of Translation Studies in Spring 2016. In the past few years, I donated 150,000+ words to Translators Without Borders as of Summer 2020.

I became a member of the American Translators Association (ATA) in December 2013. My specializations and areas of interest include Libraries & Information Science, History & Museums, Youth Literature & Comic Books, and NGO work. I've also translated Microfinance and Executive Coaching & Intercultural Consulting.

My professionalism, timeliness and attention to detail, as well as my ability to learn about new fields when translating and proofreading texts has always been appreciated.

Recent translation I'm very proud of: Journalist Kenneth Rosen article that won the Print trophy at the 25th Bayeux Calvados-Normandy Award for War Correspondents (2018); Atrocity Report scenarios with the Holocaust Museum (2019-2020); online novella for mystery fiction author John Connolly (2020).

[Darn, there's got to be a way to insert a carriage return, but I can't figure out how, sorry!]
