Welcome to my site! My name is Sally Bird (Mayhew) and I am a qualified professional translator, working from French to English.


I live in south west France, and provide a high-quality, efficient translation service for individuals, charities and businesses throughout the UK and Europe. I undertake all sorts of work, always making sure my clients have a fixed price quote and a clear timeframe for delivery of their translation. 


Whatever your project, please contact me to get a free quote. My rates are generally 0.10€ per word, but there is some flexibility, depending on the circumstances (large projects, voluntary sector organisations).

Translation is a skill that is more than simply knowing two languages well: often there are many 'correct' possible translations, but not all of them will read fluently and beautifully. A poor translation can be misleading and damaging to a reputation or product. I work carefully to produce a text that is accurate but also reads perfectly in English. You can find out more about my qualifications and expertise here and I have references and a full cv available upon request.  



 'Thanks for your extremely efficient and professional response’


‘Un grand grand merci pour la réactivité et la qualité…'  



I have been registered as a freelance worker under the French autoentrepreneur scheme since 2011. I am not currently a court-appointed translator, so am unable to provide translations of official documents.
