OUR FRENCH INTERPRETER SERVICES
JESSICA | Why Choose Me?
I am a fully qualified French interpreter / French Conference Interpreter, holding an MA in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Bath, gained with Distinction. My mother tongue is English, and the other languages I work with are French and Spanish. Since qualifying, I have worked with a range of different clients on a large number of projects, covering fields such as agriculture, the automotive industry, trade, international investment and the energy sector.
I have experience in a conference setting (UN Crime Congress 2015, La Via Campesina Mid-term conference 2016, EU Mock council 2015 etc.) as well as in a liaison environment, working regularly with primary research firms (Ridgetop, Third Bridge etc.) in meetings regarding international trade and business. I am also experienced in a Public Service environment, particularly for the NHS, in settings such as hospitals, doctors’ surgeries or social services meetings. My range of experience has allowed me to develop various skills depending on the situation: accuracy and efficiency while providing French interpreting services in business meetings, sensitivity and consideration when working with NHS patients, and emotive and engaging delivery when interpreting impassioned speeches in a conference setting.
Working as an French Interpreter /French Conference Interpreter is the perfect job for me – it allows me to be constantly learning, not only improving my languages, but also gaining knowledge about the world around me. I have lived in both France and Spain (one year in Galicia, and two years in sunny Provence) which means that I have excellent comprehension of the languages I work with, and am comfortable enough speaking them to ensure effective and efficient communication of any given message.
I embrace each new French Conference Interpreting opportunity, always working to provide the best possible Interpreting service through thorough preparation, intense concentration and delivery of a well-packaged, interesting message.
I love the personal interaction that interpreting from English to French and from French to English involves, and believe in building good relationships with clients and colleagues is very important. However, there is a fine line to tread when it comes to compassion and impartiality, particularly when working with patients in a French Interpreting Public Service setting. I pride myself on delivering a sensitive service and being able to build rapport with clients, while remaining impartial and professional at all times
