Julia Bilby: a dedicated, experienced translator and language service professional since 2010, working from French to English.

After obtaining a first class degree in French Studies from the University of Warwick, I went on to work in several different roles in France, gaining expertise in marine and environmental issues, local development and heritage, real estate, tourism, the arts, business… a range of very specific niches with their own precise needs. Combined with Masters level training in translation, this linguistic talent and specialist knowledge set me on the path to providing freelance language services in the fields I care about the most and understand the best.
