Me, myself and I

Welcome.

Hi, my name is Valérie Gillet

 

I am trained as a translator, copywriter, project manager, French and English teacher, trainer, and coach. 

I’ve been working in this sector from the end of my long and eclectic studies in 2005.

I am a full member of the Belgian Chamber of Translators and Interpreters.

I also studied law and I often translate legal documents and am a certified legal translator/interpreter.

I’ve been translating, writing, editing and managing projects for:

  • European and international institutions and agencies

  • European and international NGOs and bodies

  • European and public communication agencies

  • Private companies

  • Cultural bodies

  • Translation agencies

  • Publishing companies

  • Private citizens

  • Friends and family (as all freelancers are doomed to do)

​​

To know more about my academic and professional credentials and my experience, please visit my LinkedIn profile. 

You’ll find below a non-exhaustive list of the bodies I’ve been working with.

Although I translate all kinds of texts, I particularly like institutional, journalism and cultural subjects, as well as literary translation, development cooperation, marketing, imaginative transcreation and creative copywriting.

​I worked as a project manager, specialising in multilingual communication projects for the European institutions. I’m also an experienced French and English teacher

For those who read French fluently, I write about my everyday adventures in a private blog, 'Presque parfaite'. I also write about my life as a freelancer in this website's blog

I’m also active on social media (Facebook and Instagram), where I try and post about subjects which are dear to my heart. Have a look!

Looking forward to working with you...
