Corinne McKay, CT
ATA-certified French to English translator
When you need a translator for a critical project—whether it's a birth certificate or an annual report—you can’t afford to take risks. During my 15+ years as a French to English translator, I’ve established a reputation as a trusted partner for individuals, corporations, NGOs, and charitable foundations. I am certified by the American Translators Association for French to English translation.
Why work with me?
Clients in the US and Europe count on me to deliver accurate, informed, and well-researched English versions of their French documents. My background in French includes a year at the University of Grenoble, a Master’s degree in French literature, regular visits to France and Switzerland, and certification from the American Translators Association.
If your upcoming French to English translation needs include:
- Personal/official documents such as birth, marriage, or death certificates, educational records, driver’s licenses, etc.
- Real estate documents related to the purchase or sale of a property in a French-speaking country
- International development documents such as quarterly or annual reports, initial or ongoing funding requests, monitoring and evaluation documents, etc.
- Content marketing materials such as blog posts, newsletters, social media updates, or web articles
- Business contracts
… or other types of French to English translations, let’s talk. I’m here as your trusted partner for your most important work.
I work with French and US-based publishing houses and self-published authors, combining a writer's touch with a linguist's commitment to finding just the right word.
My translation of Erhard Loretan and Jean Ammann's Night Naked: A Climber's Autobiography was short-listed for the 2017 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature.

Clients and colleagues say nice things

La traduction convient parfaitement !
Corinne is fantastic! She is kind and professional. Very experienced and dedicated to serve. I noted that my translation needed to be done urgently and on a short notice and she worked outside of business hours to accommodate my request. Highly recommended!
Corinne is a true professional, to a degree rarely seen among freelance translators. She is very responsive and has excellent business etiquette combined with a common sense approach to work.
Thank you for the excellent translations, and for always being so efficient and trustworthy.
Aside from being a great person, Corinne is a seasoned professional and excellent communicator. If you ever want to hire a language professional who knows what she is talking about, don't hesitate to hire her.
