I am French (born in Bayonne, in the South-West) and live in Brighton, in the UK… Living and working in the UK for nine years has allowed me to develop an intimate understanding of this country, its language and funny ways. This makes me particularly well-equipped to translate English texts into French, my mother tongue. I keep constantly in touch with French by listening to the radio (I especially like Europe 1 and France infos), reading Le nouvel observateur every week as well as novels in French and of course, talking regularly to my family and friends.
Her latest post is on the expression “spin doctor” (“‘Spin Doctor’, what a great expression in English and how difficult it is to translate. A literal translation would mean absolutely nothing in French and I’ve often wondered how to render it…”) Welcome, Céline!
