Projects By Specialty

Marie believes that a translator's role is not to blindly translate a text.
A translator needs to understand the aim and purpose of the source document so that they convey the same messages, emotions and ideas. In her opinion, it is therefore imperative that the translator doesn't just have a good knowledge of the linguistics of languages and translation theories.
When translating a text, Marie also considers the importance of the cultural and historical influences and references that each language holds within it.
