Google translate is a total disaster, I agree. I have Finnish and Danish friends on FB and they often write in F or D - google translate is hilariously funny, and total googledigook!
https://www.deepl.com/translator is much better, but it is still a machine translation.

Hi Odile,

Are you interested in doing an english to french translation for a somewhat large amount of documents?

I have started a legal case against a very large independent financial advisory company who have fraudulently mis-invested many peoples money. To the tune of nearly 100 million! It's a David vs Goliath type challenge! I have just been informed yesterday that the Swiss Procureur has accepted the case, and it's looking good at this early stage. However I now need to find a way to get lots of these documents translated from English into French.

Let me know if this interests you.

My Swiss mobile is [removed] if you prefer to call to discuss.

Kind Regards
Steve
I potentially would be interested. As I usually work French to English I would need to see excerpts of the documents to asses whether or not I think I could give a satisfactory translation. It would also depend on the timing. I’m currently tied up in too many projects and classes; I wouldn’t be able to start until January.

Feel free to send me a private message if you’d be interested.
