I provide freelance translations services from English into French – my native language – as well as proofreading of translated documents.
My background is in international business, and I have extensive experience in the translation of corporate documents, including commercial and marketing material, newsletters, presentations, conference packs, as well as contracts, company policies, training material, financial reports and more.
My other areas of expertise include tourism and hospitality as well as health and wellbeing, and I have a particular interest in topics relating to natural medicine and nutrition.
I aim to offer high quality, professional and accurate translations.
Where necessary, I will work closely with clients to ensure that the intent and context of the original are preserved, and that I am aware of my client’s specific needs and target audiences.
Hi, I am Caroline Gosling
I have always had a passion for languages. Originally from the Alsace region of France, I was raised in a bilingual French-German environment and switching between languages has been natural to me from an early age. I later learned English and liked it so much that it became the subject I chose to study at university.
I settled in the United Kingdom in 1994 and worked for pan-European corporations for over 25 years, during which I used my language skills daily and gained a strong experience in bi-lingual document administration and international business management.
In 2016 I validated my skills by gaining the DipTrans diploma with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, of which I am a full member.
How I work
As a translator, I work in a meticulous and precise way, always aiming to achieve the highest level of accuracy, whilst taking care to ensure that style and cultural adequacy are preserved – a translation should read like an original text, and not a translation!
Given my corporate background, I understand the way in which businesses operate and their needs for quality, quick turnaround, and customer care. This drives me to always achieve the very best results, which is why my clients value my services.
Best of all, I get to spend my days doing what I love!
