Translate, into French, English texts of a primarily technical nature that may be highly complex, may relate to a wide variety of subjects and may vary widely in terms of style and polish. In that context provide a French version that is stylistically, grammatically and syntactically very good, requires little or no revision and faithfully reflects the meaning or intention of the original. When required work under pressure of tight deadlines, reconciling quality and speed, with constant concern to achieve the best possible compromise, given the customer's requirements and the nature and degree of polish of the original text. When quality requirements warrant it, critically re-read translations by other senior translators, at their request.
