Céline is our translator at LAT.
Originally from Quebec City, she now lives with her family in Collingwood, Ontario, where she settled after living in Belgium for several years. When Céline is not skiing, hiking or running, she handles the French language perfectly, adapts the content for the Canadian French market and writes blog posts to share her brilliant ideas and unique points of view.
Jean Francois is our translator at LAT.
He actively nurtures a lifelong passion for nature, books, and food, and is known for helpfulness and desire to meet people from different cultures. After studying electricity and briefly working on several construction and industrial projects, he chose to fully embrace his bookish nature and go back to college. There, among many things, he learned a valuable lesson from a Spanish teacher: Everything you want to accomplish is possible until you are proven otherwise. Applying this philosophy led Jean-François through a series of very unusual but enriching work and life experiences, as well as travel adventures. It has also been the driving force behind everything he does. When faced with a challenge, like a particularly difficult technical translation or finding a creative slogan for a new product, we can rely on his determination to find the perfect solution.

Hengyan’s favourite saying in Chinese is 勿以恶小而为之，勿以善小而不为。
