I am consistently impressed with Claire's work. She is highly responsive and never misses a deadline; she always accommodates my requested delivery time-frames and goes above and beyond all expectation. Her attention to detail is much appreciated. I would recommend Claire to anyone looking for a 5-star translator who is a pleasure to work with and a great addition to any localization/translation team.

Claire translated a complex, technical Government tender document for us. In addition to a “standard” translation, Claire helped us understand the subtle tender requirements and added value by contributing proposal presentation ideas to improve the chance of success. Claire responded very quickly to the job and each subsequent request for help. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Claire translated a market linkages guide from English into French, so that our staff and partners in West Africa could use it in planning programs with community groups. Claire asked all the right questions to frame the translation of this document for clear understanding and effective use by our staff. She was prompt in all her communication and completed the project on time. We will definitely keep Select French Translations in mind for our future translation work.

Claire’s translations from English to French were very clear and accurate, having a good sense of flow: they read as if the text had originally been written in French.

Merci beaucoup for all your help with the tender for Tahiti. We certainly could not have completed without your help!

I highly recommend Claire, as a very responsible individual, who takes great pride in what she does. As a capable translator she is very organised, autonomous and reliable; a pleasure to work with.

It was a pleasure working with Claire, the translation of French documents was accepted by the New Zealand banks, which allowed our mutual client to buy his first home. Thanks for the good work Claire.

We always find Claire  very professional in her dealings with us, and in addition to her work being of a consistently high quality, we have always found her to be punctual with regards to deadlines and responsive to our queries. We look forward to continuing to work with her. 

Ilaria Gallo,
Climate Change Specialist

Claire worked under my supervision as Translator and Reviser for the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in June 2015. Claire proved to be a very professional, diligent and dependable team worker. She demonstrated a sound command of both English and French languages and she managed to translate a text of great complexity and technical nature by maintaining good standard of consistency and faithfulness to the style and nuances of the original piece.

Claire helped us with translation of interactive learning resources from English into French and was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, communicated clearly and promptly, went out of her way to help us as we set up a new team of linguists, and delivered quality work that exceeded our expectations. We look forward to continuing to work with Claire in the future!
