I am a native French translator living in Woking, Surrey.

My name is Emmanuelle, and I come from Béziers, in the beautiful Southern region of Languedoc – officially called “Occitanie”.

I moved to Paris to study languages and translation before establishing myself as a freelance translator.

Being very fond of England, its customs and language, I moved to Surrey in 1998, and I have not looked back since.

Throughout the years, I have adapted to my evolving profession, continually updating my skills, broadening my knowledge and fine-tuning my expertise.

Personal interests: I remain a proud supporter of independent businesses and bookshops. If my love affair with England started with Agatha Christie, nowadays, I am an avid reader of contemporary French literature. Good food is an essential pleasure for the gourmet that I am, and I must confess to being a keen amateur of very dark chocolate.
