EXPERT FRENCH TRANSLATION
Are you a private individual who needs to have an official document - e.g. birth certificate, degree - translated?
Are you an academic or author who needs to have a literary text translated?
I'm Amandine Lepers-Thornton, the friendly French face behind Amend in Style Translations.
Originally from Lille, I arrived in the UK in 2003 to finish my undergraduate English degree. After a few years of teaching and studying in Leeds, Edinburgh and Glasgow, I moved to the beautiful city of Oxford, where I've based my translation business since 2014.
