French to English translation is the very core of my services, and I pride myself on being able to provide you with translation which is right for your audience and your specifications.

About me.

My name is Joshua Lee. I’m a freelance French to English translator from Johnstone, Scotland. I grew up in Glasgow.

I attended the University of Glasgow to study French. While at University, I also studied some Russian, philosophy and classics. As part of my French education I covered both language and culture aspects of France.

I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2013 with my undergraduate Master’s degree in French. Since then, I’ve been freelancing and have had a chance to try out some different projects, and I still greatly enjoy translation.

In my spare time, I like music (and play clarinet and piano), video games, and taking care of two manic cats and a rapidly growing puppy.

What I'm working on now.

Currently, I am working on an ongoing collaboration with Amazon. This involves both translation and post-editing of machine translation. This has been a fulfilling and interesting collaboration, and has given me more expertise in retail translation.

It’s important to me that you are comfortable working with me, and to help you see how I’ve helped others, here are a few comments on the services I’ve provided for my clients.
