27 year-old French Canadian professional translator currently living in Quebec City, Canada. Fluent in French, English, Spanish, German and Italian - passive understanding of Catalan and currently trying to find the time to learn Russian and Hebrew (eek!). I graduated from Bishop's University with a BA in Modern Languages (Spanish/German Major, Italian Minor) in 2009 and with an MA in Translation and Terminology from Laval University in 2012. I was a freelance translator for a little over two years, then worked in one of the Big Four accounting firms for nearly three years. I am now working full-time as an in-house translator-reviser for a consulting firm in energy efficiency based out of Quebec City.

My TED story
My friend Martin Boháčik (Slovak translator here) told me about this site and as I have done voluntary subtitling for another non-profit organization before (Spanish into French), it got me interested.
