About me

Blue Frog Language Services is Joan Le Bris, professional translator and English teacher with 18 years of experience in French to English translation and English teaching.

With a masters degree and post-graduate diploma in languages and marketing, I am passionate about the French and English languages, and am fully bilingual, having lived in France since 1997. In 2011, I obtained French nationality, and now feel as French as I do British.

After several years working as an in-house English teacher and translator in the IT, technical and commercial fields, the move to full-time freelance translation and teaching was a natural one. I now work with translation agencies and language schools, as well as directly with businesses, associations and individuals.

The range and diversity of tasks for which I have been responsible during my career have enabled me to develop my inherent sense of organization and my eye for detail, as well as my ability to adapt to different situations and requirements, according to my clients’ needs.
