Nathalie Kelk Chamonix translator

Hi, I'm Nathalie!

I'm half French and half English and grew up between Paris and London. I have native fluency in both languages, as well as an academic grounding in translation gained through my degree in French from the University of Exeter.

Currently based in the Chamonix valley, I provide friendly and professional language services. Get in touch at

I translate from French to English.

Professional Translation

I am comfortable translating all manner of texts, such as user manuals, product descriptions, and websites. Whatever the genre, I enjoy the challenge of producing an accurate translation which stays true to the tone of the original.


Meeting at the bank? Unexpected letter from the Mairie? Even improving French learners sometimes still need help with those tricky situations. I can accompany you to appointments or help you understand your correspondance.


Speaking over the phone can be one of the most intimidating scenarios in which to use your second language. I can make that dreaded "coup de fils" on your behalf.

Here are some of the things my clients have said about me so far.

"Nathalie interpreted for me at the hospital for a medical issue. She was brilliant, even researching the condition before we met! She is professional and personable - I would highly recommend her."

Claire Bramley, Manager at NGO and new mother

"Nathalie made several phonecalls to the French authorities on our behalf whilst we were setting up our branch office and taking on our first French-system employees. She was a pleasure to work with."

Ben Bellamy, Owner of Icon Software Ltd

"Despite living in the valley for several years, I'm not a strong French speaker. Nathalie has helped me with all forms of correspondance, from bills and insurance, to my gens du pays application and letters related to my auto-enterprise."
