Marion began working part-time as a freelance translator during her Master's degree (Université Denis Diderot - Paris 7, 2011) and continued doing so during her PhD in Translation Studies (Université Paris 3 - Sorbonne Nouvelle, 2016). Since her PhD defense in January 2016, she has been working full-time. Her main fields of specialization are literature/art and economics (in particular development and climate economics). However, she has experience translating a wide range of materials for a large variety of clients, from insurance firms and academic researchers to NGOs and tourism agencies. She is a dynamic, focused and efficient worker, highly detail-oriented and organised, and she can work very well both independently and under the pressure of a short deadline.
Summary of Industry Experience
Marion has translated a wide range of materials that broadly fall under the label of entertainment: a video game (OFabulis), books about photography and art (photography books for the Lucie Weill & Seligmann art gallery, essays about art by Henry James), as well as the subtitles of several short films by actor and director Mathias Minne. She is a literature and cinema enthusiast and would love to translate more literary works as well as film or TV series subtitles.
Marion was a translation intern at NGO Plan France and has also done voluntary translation work for French NGO Enfants d'Asie.
She worked as a volunteer (hot meal distribution) for French nonprofit Les Restos du Coeur and supports the French Red Cross.
