French Translations

Here is a selection of the many French to English translations I have done over the years. As you can see, I have translated a myriad of documents: recipes, song lyrics, poetry, news articles, and literature. I have found that exposing myself to many kinds of documents in other languages to be translated into English has really helped me in my translation skills, since each kind of document requires its own style that must be maintained in the translation. Recipes need to have measurements converted  for American audiences, and they also require specific vocabulary for various cooking methods. Song lyrics need to be conversational and sound just as natural in English as they do in the original language.
