Established in 2008, vyTranslations is based in the extreme west of Canada, in the picturesque Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.
We are a full-time professional translation service... As language specialists, we never give up fighting with a sentence until it sounds natural and right. We mainly translate from English to French, but we can provide other languages as needed, so don't be afraid to ask. We have Translators all over the world waiting for your projects right now. All translations are proofread and approved by native speakers and you will always receive documents that are professionally translated, edited and proofread.

I once dreamed of running my own business and first began translating comic books and graphic novels from a young age. I developed a real passion for translating while I was working with the Francophone Association in the Yukon Territory, as a literacy coordinator.
I have over 12 years of experience in English to Canadian French translations with particular expertise in the Energy Sector, Health and Social Services, Education and Literacy, Nutrition, Immigration, Economic Development, Tourism and Travel, Canada’s North, Sports, Marketing (Press releases, Websites, etc.), and Literature. I am also specialized in writing and editing French documents such as letters, proposals, resumes, newsletters, etc.
I was born and raised in Belgium, with French as a mother tongue, and I have been living in Canada over the last 13 years.
University Degrees: Translation (University of Manitoba), Bachelor of Social Work and Heath Promotion and Communication certificate (University of Liège), Business Administration (HEC, Liège).
I am a member of the Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (STIBC) - English to French.
Chief Organization Officer Marketing Support
I ran my own catering business for over 15 years before I decided to hang up my Chef jacket for the last time and join Vincent on his adventure.
My role is to assist Vincent with what I can to make his life easier. If that means staying awake all night feeding him tea and keeping him awake so he can meet the deadline, then that's what I do. I am also responsible for coordinating our various Translators here and around the world. Making sure all your documents are being translated on time!
Certifications: Business Management (Camosun College, Victoria), Marketing Certificate (Camosun College), Chef Papers with Red Seal (Camosun College).
Knowing two languages doesn't make you a translator any more than having ten fingers makes you a pianoist.
