Overview

English & Spanish to French professional literary translator and proofreader, with a Master's Degree in Translation and more than 10 years of experience as a freelancer.

I have translated and reviewed dozens of novels (fantasy, suspense, romantic comedy, but also theater, books meant for kids, autobiographies, etc.) for publishers, translation agencies and indie authors, including many USA Today and New York Times best sellers.

As a writer myself, I know how important this is for an author to make sure the translator will accurately recreate their universe in a target language, and I work closely with each author to be really faithful to their creation. I also provide review and proofreading services in addition to the translation (meaning 3 quality steps for an optimal result).

Looking forward to working with you!

Diane was fabulous to work with! She responded promptly, helped me with market research for covers and titles to work in French and she kept amazing spreadsheets with keywords, inquiries on words and phrases to clarify and other things. I will definitely be working with her again!

Diane is a pleasure to work with. She's extremely professional, well-organised and efficient, with great attention to detail and she has also been very patient with "special requests". I've really enjoyed working with her.
