The YMCAs of Québec

Following an eight-month contract with the YMCAs of Québec, we continue to work together on a freelance basis. I translate and write a variety of texts for their many programs—health and fitness, camps, youth programs, community services, and more.
University of Ottawa Press
Freelance copy editor, translator, and proofreader
North America’s only fully bilingual press, UOP publishes about a dozen books in each language every year. I have provided copy editing and proofreading services for books in their Canadian studies, history, and politics and public policy series. I also translated Chairing Successful Meetings (published in 2021) from the original French and translated book descriptions and author biographies for their catalogues.
Share the Warmth
Share the Warmth is a grassroots community organization, serving Montréal's southwest neighbourhoods. For four years, I was responsible for creating content and writing their various communications: annual reports, impact reports, newsletters, press releases, donor communications, and more. I also managed their social media and website.

French to English translation and adaptation
Translating or adapting your texts into another language is a great way to broaden your brand's reach. You want to make sure you hire a native speaker who has a grasp of the local culture so your text does not sound like a translation. I stay true to your message and keep all the style and flair of your original text. Here are a few of the industries I translate for regularly:
Advertising and marketing
Art, architecture, and interior design
Food and wine
Health, fitness, and wellness
Real estate development
Copywriting and content creation
Words are my business. I write smart, persuasive copy to showcase your products and services. I have worked with a range of clients, from small start-ups to large international companies. I take the time to listen to what you have to say, so that I can write copy that reflects who you are as a brand. Investing in good quality copy shows that you take your brand seriously.
