I've been translating food-related materials for several years, but this past year I've taken that specialty in a new direction. I have translated materials for several NGOs working in improving nutrition and food security in French-speaking countries.
These international organizations work in areas such as capacity-building in food processing and marketing, as well as in assisting small farmers to improve their production to feed their families and market their crops and animals. Translating proposals, progress reports and country reports helps funders understand the impact that these programs are having.
While I love translating for restaurants, growers and manufacturers, there is a lot of satisfaction in translating food-related materials that help people build a better life and care for their families.
