About me
Hi, nice to meet you!

I'm Clem, the English to French freelance translator behind Clémentine Terrell Translation.

I grew up in France, and hold a degree in English Language, Literature, Civilisation and Translation Studies from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon.

As a native French living in the UK (I am based in Dorset), French is my mother tongue and English is my habitual language of use. I spend my life constantly switching between both languages, but only translate professionally from English into French.

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) with Chartered Linguist status, and an Associate of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI).

I am Amazon Retail and Amazon Advertising certified. I learnt the ins and outs of Amazon whilst working as a French translator/online content & advertising specialist on the Amazon team of a UK retail distributor between 2016 and 2020.

I have translated marketing content ranging from headphones, fashion accessories and facial brushes to teabags, phone cases and luxury hotels, to name just a few! Check out my portfolio for more details.

I am also a fully qualified teacher and worked as a French teacher in a British secondary school for 8 years before becoming a professional English to French translator in 2014.

I am obsessed with organising: give me a chaotic room to declutter or a messy spreadsheet to sort out and I'm the happiest girl on earth!

If you would like to know more about my professional qualifications and experience, feel free to get in touch for a chat, request my CV, or check out my LinkedIn profile.
