My name is Claire Sjaarda. I am a qualified commercial translator based in Auckland, New Zealand. As a native French speaker, I translate from English into French exclusively. My translations read as native texts to help your business reach out to a French speaking audience, build trust and business credibility.
Understanding of Linguistic and Cultural Differences
With over 15 years spent living and working in London and many French summer school holidays spent attending school in the UK while growing up, I am sensitive to the nuances and subtleties of both languages and have a thorough understanding of local cultural differences.
Expert Subject Knowledge
Drawing from my experience of working for various translation agencies, the EU, UN entities and NGOs, I am familiar with the requirements, terminology and writing style of e-commerce related content, business, marketing, governmental and environmental texts and a range of sectors such as Tourism and International Development.
I am committed to providing you with flawless translations that not only convey your message accurately but reflect your style, brand and objective. I take time to research your business, products and services, gathering terminology relevant to your industry.
