About

I’m Caitlin, a freelance French to English translator and copywriter based in Bristol, UK. Nice to meet you!

Living in Bristol is partly what inspired me to specialise in all things sustainable. The pandemic was another. I know it inspired a lot of people to rethink what matters to them and I’m one of them. I want to help ethical and sustainable organisations make more of an impact.

I translate and write web content, blog posts and newsletters for ethical and purpose-driven organisations.
