Translation is the faithful rendering of the meaning of a document in a target language. I only work from English (original language) to French (target language). My translation will match French linguistic, cultural and textual conventions, as well as the context of the text and its register.

Certified vs Sworn translations
As a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, I am able to deliver certified translations into English. Certified translations are recognised by the UK authorities (governmental departments, the UK Home Office, Courts, Immigration Departments, Visa departments, schools, Universities etc.).
The system being different in France, I cannot deliver the sworn translations usually required by the French authorities (embassies, consulates, local préfectures etc.). Please check the type of translation you need with the authority to which the translation will be addressed.
