About Me

I’m Catharine Cellier-Smart, a British-born freelance French to English translator who’s lived on Reunion Island, a French overseas department in the Indian Ocean, for 18 years since 1990.

I’m a member of the Syndicat National des Traducteurs Professionnels, the French National Translators’ Union.

This blog contains some of my reflections on language and translation.

I also write another blog about travel, mainly in Asia (where I lived for three years 2008-2011), the SW Indian Ocean, Reunion Island, and diving.

In the course of the past year I’ve also made a professional presentation to BTS students at Lycée Amiral Bouvet high school, been interviewed by students from Lycée St Charles, and given six presentations at the Collège Hippolyte Foucque Career Morning.

As well as being a volunteer translator at Translators Without Borders, in December 2012 I was also a volunteer interpreter for Med’Ocean.
