There’s nothing I love more than working with words and language. A French and linguistics graduate with an MA in translation, I’ve been an EFL teacher and translator in Japan, edited content for global businesses in London, and written my own blog on all things language. Professionally, I specialize in foreign languages, tourism and marketing content, translation, and localization, but I love writing about absolutely anything to do with language and beyond.

I completed the Knowadays proofreading and editing courses in 2023. As an already experienced editor, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I still had to learn (always a good thing!). Since graduating from Knowadays, I’ve started freelancing for its partner company Proofed alongside my own clients in the life coaching and wellness sphere.

Having finished Becoming A Freelance Writer, I’m thrilled to contribute to the Knowadays blog. I hope to share my knowledge and passion through writing (and learn new things myself too!).
