I'm Katherine Parks. I translate French legal and HR documents into clear, effective English from my office in Paris.

    Having grown up in the United States, I have now lived in France for ten years, so I know both cultures inside out. I am also a lifelong learner. Throughout my career to date, I have constantly worked to improve my skills and further my specialist knowledge, obtaining a master’s degree in Human Resources Management in 2009. In 2015, I also completed a Graduate Diploma in Law, having recognized growing demand for legal translations from my clients. This continued study has provided me with in-depth knowledge of the English legal system and English legal terminology.

    After working in an executive search firm and in the HR department of an international organization, I decided to focus exclusively on French to English translation in 2010, combining my linguistic skill, cultural insight, and passion for my areas of specialization.
