Career & Education

Relocating to France.

And here we are, already three years in Washington, DC… I’m going back to France in the Paris region and will gladly put my services at your disposal in September.

I also wish to thank my loyal customers for their kind patronage and my NPO’s friends for their support. This expatriation experience was a success thanks to you all!

Creation of Flora Collado Consulting, LLC.

After working for 20 years  in the field of Technical Documentation, I thought that this constructive experience provided the perfect foundation for my next challenge: to provide the best solutions to your business and your clients.

I’m also a proud member of the STC which is a most widely recognized professional association in the United States and in Europe.

 

Webmaster Volunteer in Washington, DC.

Since 2013, I’ve been working as Webmaster Volunteer for Washington Accueil Association.

Print & Web Design.

In 2012, I resumed my studies to acquire knowledge in a complementary and challenging field: Print and Web Communication (Associate Degree) because new media have progressively altered our way to disseminate information.

Technical Writing.

I obtained my Professional Master’s Degree in Technical Writing from the University of Technology of Compiègne in 2008, coupled with an information mapping® certification.

In 2009, I joined SkyRecon Systems – a growing computer security startup – as a Technical Writer and Translator.

Technical Translation.

I obtained my Master of Advanced Studies in Technical Translation in 1992 and was immediately hired by a consulting firm.

Then, I worked at NAVFCO − the Navy Branch of Défense Conseil International – which provides operational training courses based on the know-how of the French Armed Forces.

I was rapidly promoted to Senior Translator and Proofreader in charge of Weapons/Equipment.

Additionally, I was appointed to the position of CAT Administrator to handle a customized computer-assisted translation platform.

Études d’anglais.

J’ai obtenu une maîtrise d’anglais avec mention Très Bien à l’Université Catholique de l’Ouest (Institut de Perfectionnement en Langues Vivantes) en 1991.

Langues :
