I am the creator and owner of this website. My name is Chantal, I am a dual national and was born in Lille, Northern France and moved to the UK in 1974 to study and ended up living there for many years!
I was always interested in languages from an early age and after studying for a proficiency at Cambridge took a joint French degree at Birkbeck College in London.
I also studied French and History of Art in Sydney, Australia where I lived for four years.
I have worked mainly in advertising, publishing and the media as well as in the hotel world, mainly in the field of accounting.
I enjoy travelling the world and communicating in all languages (I also speak Spanish and German).
I have recently decided to go and live in the town of Carcassonne in the south of France and start-up a new career as a translator after having studied for my qualifications from the Institute of Linguists at Westminster University of London.
