Freelance translator in Yorkshire
Helping French and Italian-speaking businesses delight their English audiences.
Hi! I’m Chloe Stout.
I’m a freelance translator based in beautiful Yorkshire, UK.
I’m here to help you get through to your ideal English-speaking customers.
Whether that’s by translating your marketing texts or creating English subtitles for your videos.
Most translators do what we do because we’ve been under the spell of language ever since we can remember.
And I’m no exception! I fell for French at primary school, and Italian when I was a teenager.
As part of my BA, I spent time as a teaching assistant in Italy. Once I’d graduated, I went into the world of e-Commerce, using both my French and my Italian.
But it wasn’t long until I realised translation was calling my name, did my MA, then dived headfirst into the freelance world.
Here are the main things you need to know about me:

Away from my laptop
After a long day in front of a screen, I like to get creative!
I’ve always got an embroidery project on the go, and I love experimenting in the kitchen.
