Summary of Industry Experience

Entertainment

In 2015, as a subcontractor, Caroline translated about 150 descriptive panels for two different exhibitions for an important Canadian art museum. The biggest translation assignment was for an exhibition about landscape painters from the Americas. The exhibition examined landscape painting from the early nineteenth century to the early twentieth century in an inclusive, pan-American context. Thematically organized, the exhibition placed special emphasis on the areas where landscape painting expressions were most vital. From a translator point of view, the challenge was to provide reader-friendly panels for French-speaking visitors using creativity to convey the artistic spirit of the descriptions, with both good style and accuracy.
