Translation came to me by chance, but I've always felt destined to it.
I had once up to four passports from: Morocco (where my parents where born), Israel (where they emigrated), Ivory Coast (where I was born) and Switzerland (where I grew up).
At home, we spoke only French, but always used Hebrew with my Family in Israel.
At School, French also, since I grew up and live in Geneva, which is in French part of Switzerland, but started learning German since I was 10 years old, then English and Italian in High school where I graduated Swiss Modern Maturity (Languages).
I went then to Law School in Geneva, where I acquired strong legal English (Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot) and German (Erasmus in Vienna). Used and refined those skills during a two years period as a Trainee Attorney. And since I've passed my Bar exam and started working, I have always evolved in a multilingual environment, mainly using EN and FR, drafting and translating many documents (legal, contracts, financing) in those languages, especially as Head of Legal department of a multinational Private Equity and Real Estate Company. Work fields: Banking, Private Banking, Real Estate, Private equity, Investment, Financing, Corporate, Commercial.
After immigrating in Israel in 2007, I started Talmudic studies and, since I could not work as an Attorney, searched for other opportunities. Translation came to me by chance, when a neighbor asked my if I knew someone able to translate his book on dietetic and homeopathy form English to French. I did the job and love it! That led me to many more projects and a successful carrier as a Translator, working for Publishers, Organisations, Websites and Agencies, in Israel and abroad.
My specialties are defined by my education and work experience, ie legal and business, as well as Talmud material (almost ten years of Kollel in Hebrew). I try to give the best service and quality to my clients and, as any good Swiss citizen, make a point of never missing a deadline...
That's about it... don't hesitate to contact me for more info or a quote!!

A new (upgraded) version of yourself
A translation is above all a new version of your original - switching to a new public, bringing forth renewed ideas that were actually embedded in your original, living room to reach improved realms which can only dwell in the meanders of a foreign language, turning a potential into reality, having an as positive as unexpected overall impact. They said it couldn't be done, but here you are! Let's just go for it, and together we'll reach new horizons...
