Natalie Pavey—Certified Translator and Founder of NP Translations
My goals as a translator reflect who I am and what I value.
I developed an interest in international affairs during my first experience abroad as a university student in Montpellier, France. Living abroad made me realize that I wanted to utilize my understanding of the French language to foster cross-cultural communication. After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in French and Anthropology, I served as a US Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Benin. In support of development initiatives, I taught English to young students and participated in gender development and HIV/AIDS prevention projects.
My ever-present interest in environmental issues eventually led me to Alaska in 2009 where I worked as a Park Ranger and Interpreter in Katmai National Park. In addition to providing bilingual welcome orientations and leading nature hikes, I developed and presented educational programs about the park’s resources in both French and English. During my time in Alaska, I also pursued a master’s degree in French Language and Culture from King’s College London.
Drawing on my past experiences, I now provide specialized translation services to individuals, companies and organizations to help my clients attain their professional objectives through effective communication in English, whether their goal is to appeal to Canadian, American or international audiences.
