Charlotte Pénard

Freelance translator

English and Spanish into French
{ Profile }
I am a freelance translator located in Angers, France, who is passionate about languages and cultures. I offer translation services from English and Spanish into French.

My language and intercultural experiences led me to follow my passion: communicating ideas from one language and culture into another.

After obtaining an undergraduate degree in Foreign Languages, Literature and Cultures and two years spent working and studying abroad, I received a professional Master’s degree in Translation Studies from the Université Catholique de l'Ouest (Angers).

I’ve been working since 2014 as a freelance translator. I also teach translation and English language to first year graduate students at the Université d'Angers.

Lifelong learning is essential for any translator, and I constantly strive to broaden my knowledge about the specialty areas in which I work and further enhance my writing skills.

{ Services }
Entrust your content with a professional translator and free up time to devote to what you do best. You can ensure that your carefully crafted image and message will make the impact you were hoping for.

Translation of documents written in English and Spanish into French. Translation requires not just an in-depth understanding of the source language, culture and the subject area, but excellent writing skills in French as well. It’s not about translating words, but the bigger message, ideas and images, all with a style that flows well and is adapted to a French readership.


Comparison of an existing translation against the source text. Verification of the translation in terms of meaning and consistency, correction of mistakes and style improvements.


Proofreading and editing of texts originally written in French only (such as a graduate thesis). Correction of spelling, grammar, syntax, etc. Editing of the text for a natural flow.


Translation of transcriptions in English or Spanish to be used for video subtitles (documentaries, corporate presentations, etc.)
