A Holistic Translation Focus

Alongside commercial and technical work, Gabrielle’s focus as a translator is on environmental stewardship, conventional and integrative medicine, tourism, literature, and film. A Parisian native from a Franco-American family, she has been an expatriate for over twenty years, including in the United States and the United Kingdom, weaving international and local perspectives into her grasp of language. A “true” bilingual who studied French and American Literatures at the Sorbonne, and Medical and Literary translation at New York University, she translates into both directions.

Her subsequent studies in Naturopathy and an apprenticeship with homebirth midwives, bolstered by a lifelong interest in wellbeing and alternative healing (from Ayurveda to aromatherapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Anthroposophic medicine, and yogic teachings) inform her medical and holistic translation work. Gabrielle’s devotion to a healthy planet has led to multiple environmental projects with major NGOs and international organisations. In addition to cultivating long-standing relationships with clients in the tourism industry and for household brand names, her work includes translating subtitles for award-winning documentaries, feature and corporate films, scripts, multi-media content, and novels.

As a translation professional, Gabrielle is committed to the integrity and flow of language. She is detail-oriented, research-driven, and creative. In addition to quality, she offers her clients and colleagues a high level of responsiveness and flexibility.
