Could somebody help me to translate this text into French?

If you are native speaker is great, but if you are not and you have a good level it is also super nice. Thank you a lot ;)!!

Nathalie Daoust (born March 31, 1977) is a Canadian photographer and contemporary artist. Using space and light as avenues through which to examine the creation of self, she constructs worlds that lay bare the conflicting impulses that drive us.

Biography
Daoust studied photography at the Cégep du Vieux Montreal (1994–1997). Upon graduating, she moved to New York City, where she spent two years inhabiting and photographing the uniquely themed rooms of the Carlton Arms Hotel. These images comprise her first book, New York Hotel Story, published in 2002. New York Hotel Story introduces many of the themes she grapples with in subsequent works, including identity, gender, sexuality, time and memory, and escapism.

Her photographs focus on exposing hidden desires and dreams, frequently as manifested in the margins of society. Too often this margin is inhabited by women, as many of her projects attest. From portraits of female sex workers in Brazil and Japan, to the role of women in contemporary Chinese society, Nathalie explores the darker side of the construction of female identity.

Nathalie is led by her desire to understand the human impulse to construct experiences that allow us to live, for at least a moment, in a fictive world. From female dominatrices at a Japanese S&M hotel in Tokyo Hotel Story, to one man’s decision to discard his own identity in favor of another's in Impersonating Mao, her work inhabits the liminal space between fiction and truth. Her most conceptually complex project to date, Korean Dreams, explores the meaning of fantasy itself. While traveling through North Korea she observed the manipulation of reality on a national scale, capturing the layers of forced illusion perpetuated by the North Korean government.

Employing a variety of means to address her subjects, Nathalie’s technique plays a crucial role in communicating content. She employs non-digital techniques so that the process of creating the image itself contributes to her conceptual explorations.

Hey there. I don't really have the time to translate this for you into French. However, I am wondering if you are aware of DeepL ? This is a pretty new translation service and it does an incredible job at translating. You might want to check it out, so that you can get at least a nice raw translation. Just copy the text, put it into deep L and the translation will be there within seconds. The results are often pretty incredible and usually on another level than those you get from Google Translate.

Hello Paula.Cab,

As linguaholic said, DeepL can give you a rough translation of your text from English into French, but for a professional translation, I recommend you contact the German translation agency "AP Fachübersetzungen" based in Nuremberg. I have already had documents translated by them several times, and I found them to be very reliable and fast, and their translations to be of much higher quality than those of DeepL. They do specialise in medicine, pharmacy, technology and law, but they provide general translations as well. Here's the link to the English version of their website: https://www.ap-fachuebersetzungen.de/en/

I hope my tips will be helpful!

Best regards,

Language lover
