Your trusted partner for translations with an IT component

Gwendoline Clavé, English-to-French legal and IT translator

Hello! I’m Gwendoline Clavé, a legal and IT translator based in Marseille, France.

Since 2014, I’ve been helping software publishers and digital companies communicate and contract with French speakers, directly or through their lawyers.

To achieve these goals, I craft clear, accurate, and compliant translations from English into French that convey your values and expertise.

I put a combination of linguistic, legal, and IT skills at your disposal.

A qualified legal translator with a background in information technology (IT), I specialize in contracts, intellectual property, and IT law — especially data protection and privacy.

A former computational linguist, digital marketing coordinator, and SEO content writer, I bring a multi-faceted view that gives me a unique understanding of your company.

To keep up with changes in language and communication, I have been trained in gender-inclusive French as well as plain language and legal design.
