Laura-Pascale Fontaine de Ghélin
I am a French native speaker with the following qualifications:
- Degree in translation (French/Dutch/English), with distinction from the Institut Libre Marie Haps (Brussels)
- Masters degree in multilingual business communication (MTB – Meertalige Bedrijfscommunicatie), with distinction from Ghent University
- Training in international business under the “Explort” programme, organised by the Walloon Export and Foreign Investment Agency (AWEX), for which I spent a number of months in India developing business for a Belgian biotechnology company.
After working briefly in communications and public relations, I returned to my original passion of translation. I spent three years as a project manager and more than five years as an in-house translator/reviser at two prestigious translation agencies.
In 2014 I decided to embark on a freelance career and set up “Fontaine de mots”.
It was an immediate success!
Most of my clients are based in the European Union (Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Ireland etc.) but I also have clients in Switzerland and the USA.
I am a member of the Belgian Chamber of Translators and Interpreters (CBTI).
