« Translation is like home remodeling, except the translator is the builder, the electrician, and the interior designer all in one. ”
It was good news indeed when Rachel’s job application came our way. She had already helped us out on a number of freelance assignments, and we knew she was in the major leagues of translation.
Rachel has a master’s in French studies from American University and a B.A. in French language and literature from the University of Mary Washington. A Virginia native, she honed her French abroad in France, then came home to work as a translator and project manager at translation agency ASET International Services Corp., after a stint in the event management business. Today we’re delighted to have her as part of our quartet of American translators.
