Theo in a few words

Born and raised in Paris, France, I've received an entirely bilingual education from kindergarten all the way to the end of high school, in addition to attending college in the United States at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton Business School (graduated in 2013 with Honors).

Following graduation, I worked for several years in the financial, journalistic, and cosmetic industries across international and multicultural centers around the world (from Geneva in Switzerland for 4 years to London in the UK for the past 4 years), where I was able to continue perfecting my language skills through the repeated daily exposure of conversing and working in both English and French.

On top of English and French, I'm equally conversational in Spanish and Hebrew, and can easily improve upon my current proficiency levels by immersing myself again in these languages, cracking open old books and notes from my university years (or turning to my large circles of Hebrew-speaking or Spanish/Latin American family, friends and work colleagues).

Aside from the above skillset and qualifications, I consider myself a hardworking and professional individual, always eager to use my skills to help others improve the quality of their work through proofreading, translation, and at times copyrighting (expertise and adequate knowledge permitting).

I would be delighted to do all the above by putting my skills at your disposal.

I couldn't recommend Theo enough. Not only does he deliver fantastic work on time, but he's also an absolute pleasure to work with. I needed a contract to be translated from English to Spanish with a very quick turnaround and he delivered perfect results.  

Louis Eid - Nivoda

1/10/2023

Theo is extremely professional and efficient. He translated our entire platform into French and all transactional email associated (both internal and external). Very friendly, easy to work with and direct. I would 100% work with him again and recommend him to anyone looking for any French/English translation.

Pierre Safa - Investments

Peter Karamani - Castlebrooke Investments

It has been a pleasure working with Theo on a number of translation projects. His professionalism and dedication to his work is evident in the high quality results he consistently produces. In particular, I have been impressed by Theo's ability to deliver on tight deadlines. A number of tasks we have worked on together have required a swift turnaround, and Theo has always been able to deliver accordingly. In addition to his technical skills, Theo is also highly personable and has excellent communication skills. I have no doubt that he would be an asset to any team or project, and I would not hesitate to work with him again in the future. I highly recommend Theo for any translation needs.

Léna Gicquel - Popus

I am delighted to recommend Theo as an experienced translator with great command of the languages under his belt. Theo is equally a highly skilled and passionate proofreader and editor with a knack for marketing and sales. In his work with us, Theo helped accurately translate our web page to our specifications while contributing fresh ideas himself on how to improve upon our website's user-friendliness and overall user interface. Thanks to his translations and ideas, time spent on our pages and conversion metrics have increased by four times what they were with our old site. Not satisfied with leaving any stone unturned, Theo also ensured that all new wordings, design and content were consistent across all our branding platforms, including email newsletters, social media, and our outreach efforts with other sites. His contributions were invaluable, with no challenge too big for Theo to tackle.

Lauren Dannay - Whoomies & Bloks.co

1/4/2023

J'ai eu l'occasion de travailler avec Theo sur plusieurs projets de traductions Francais- Anglais pour mes deux startups, Whoomies et Bloks.co. Je recommande vivement ses compétences professionnelles de traducteur de haut niveau. En tant que Français natif, les communications avec lui étaient extrêmement fluides et son anglais absolument parfait m'a permis de produire tout type de contenu (deck investisseurs, communications marketing, financières, interviews presse, articles Linkedin, messages plus informels...) d'une qualité irréprochable et du niveau d'un anglais natif. Sa réactivité, son perfectionnisme et son sens de l'écoute en ont fait un allié incontournable pour rédiger ou reprendre mes différentes communications, sereinement et de continuer à améliorer mon vocabulaire comme synthaxe anglo-saxonne. Je continue d'ailleurs de faire appel à lui sur une base régulière. Je recommande à 100% de faire appel à ses services!

Emy Sebagh - Intro

Theo comes with a stellar recommendation after successfully submitting all the work that was assigned to him, well before tight deadlines were to be met. After carrying out the successful translation of many profile pages into multiple languages (mainly English, French), I have no doubt that Theo will prove to be of invaluable help in whichever capacity he may be hired for. Theo has translated many pitch decks, press releases, websites and LinkedIn posts for me to perfection in one go.

Aimee Hillman - Medsan

Theo was an outstanding translator for the company. His personable skills made it extremely easy and pleasant to build a smooth working relationship.     I would recommend his service and will definitely be using him again in the future. 

Daniel Charbit - Dell

I highly recommend Theo, not only for his fantastic translation skills, but also for his super quick turn around time. Despite challenging timelines, he always managed to work around our complex requirements, delivering truly localised content of the utmost quality. It is always a pleasure working with Theo, whom I thank for his willingness & can do attitude.

Myriam Bouhnik - Axiom

Theo has been extremely helpful in helping me translate and draft on multiple occasions several legal and professional documents (CV, cover letters, tenancy agreements, reviewing employment contracts...) I highly recommend him for his excellent attention to details, fluency in both French and English language, patience as well as meeting tight deadlines.
