About

As a Norman, and more particularly an Augean, my love for this part of the world and its heritage settled in at a very young age and has remained strong ever since. I was born to a mother who taught history and geography and a father who is a professional translator, so one could say I was bound to fall under the spell of foreign languages and cultures.

This keen interest in languages and the way cultures interact is something I have been nurturing for the past eight years through my current job in the field of international relations.

 

At the same time, having been a rider for more than 25 years and deeply rooted in my native region, which is often referred to as the "land of the horse", I also strive to work with professionals operating in the equestrian sector (e.g., breeders, riders, stud owners, equestrian engineers, craftsmen, veterinarians, event organisers, etc.) who wish to promote their business and image worldwide.

A keen enthusiast of local products and cultural heritage, I also combine my curiosity for the arts (whether culinary, visual, literary or cinematographic) with my work as a translator and interpreter.

 

My primary concern is to offer high quality work and develop a close and trusting relationship with all my clients, which is why I have chosen to work independently rather than through a translation agency. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Best regards,

Iris
