Christèle oversees the management of your projects from the company’s office in Toulouse, France. She also handles translations from English and German into French, specializing in medical translation and software localization.
She studied languages in both France and Germany and gained her master’s degree, then relocated to Boston, USA, to work for as a translator for a software developer.
Whilst in Boston she studied for a certificate in Graphic Design to add an extra string to her bow. During her time in the USA she worked for several companies as a graphic designer and translator, and then went on to start ArtLingua.
Moving back to France, she combined running ArtLingua with three years of lecturing at the University of Toulouse’s translation school, CETIM (Centre de traduction, d’interprétation et de médiation linguistique), while also offering CAT tool training for freelance translators.
As well as being passionate about her work, she’s a keen traveller, dedicated to furthering sustainable tourism through volunteering for an NGO. When she’s not at her desk, you might find her in the gym, or in the garden.
With over 20 years of experience in the translation world and countless happy customers, many of whom have stayed with her since day one, translation projects of any kind are safe in Christèle’s hands.
Joining the team in March 2020, Lena takes care of translations from English and Spanish into her native French.
Léna studied both in France and Spain and gained work experience in Ireland, then earned her master’s degree in translation, with a focus on audiovisual translation, at the University of Toulouse.
She spent time working with a translation agency in Toulouse as part of her degree. The same agency hired her once she had finished her degree, and in her role she specialized in medical and technical translation.
She then branched out as a freelance translator for a time, before joining the team here at ArtLingua.
When she’s not working on translation projects, she spends her time discovering the cultural delights of the city of Toulouse. She’s a foodie, and loves travelling to get a taste of international cuisines.
She’s a fantastic addition to the ArtLingua team, bringing her own knowledge to the table, whilst also being able to learn and benefit from Christèle’s extensive experience.
