About me

My name is Jeanne Michaud. I am a French native currently living in the UK.

Before that, I studied English Linguistics, Literature and Civilisation in a French University :
l’Université Lumière Lyon 2. They have one of the best English department in the country and I am still using many of the tools that the amazing professors there gave me.

Later on, after a few years in English-speaking countries, I decided to get another kind of diploma,
one that only concerned itself with pure translation. I studied by myself, while working two jobs, to get to the point where I was sure of my ability to pass the level 7 Diploma in Translation exam, created by the CIOL. Both of the specialised sections were important to me : I passed the Social Science unit with Merit and got Distinctions for the Literary section.
