Specialized French legal translator at your service.

For accurate, reliable English-to-French translation of documents with a legal, corporate or financial slant, look no further!

You know your stuff, and you want your documents in French: no errors, no mistranslations, no omissions, just what it says – in French.

I’m that rare translator with both legal education and experience, so you can trust me to get it right.

Complex terminology? Crucial phrasing? Tight deadline? Overwhelming volume? Sensitive information?

Take the weight off your shoulders and leave the stress behind.

With nearly 20 years’ experience translating for multinational organizations in France, the UK and the US, underpinned by my keen interest in law fuelled by CPD, I’m here to help.

Knowing your into-French legal translations are in safe hands, you can focus on expanding an international practice, and reaching and serving a multilingual market.

If you need other language combinations, for instance French-to-English translation, I can refer you to trusted colleagues. Imagine a multilingual website offering your services in multiple languages.

Sylvie Pelissier Translations, partnering with business & legal clients worldwide

After legal and commercial studies, I spent 10 years in the corporate world gaining valuable experience in business translation. Since then I’ve freelanced as a legal, business and financial translator for 17 years – hence my extensive expertise in translating contracts and corporate documents.

I provide translation and revision services to French law firms, law departments in multinationals and global organizations, and a worldwide client base of translation agencies and direct clients.

If you want to reach the French-speaking market with your legal, corporate or financial communications then I’ll help you ensure they hit the spot.

I’m a ProZ Certified Pro, and a longstanding member of the Société Française des Traducteurs (SFT).
