Hello and welcome to GoodEnglishPlease.com. The English language is a gateway to the rest of the world. Be sure that you are well represented on the world's stage by impeccable written English.

Good English Please is a site run by Kim Martin, a qualified linguist who offers a professional solution to your English language requirements.



I am a native English speaker offering translations from French into English. A University graduate, qualified bilingual secretary and English teacher, I have worked in commercial, banking, education and literary sectors, using both French and English. I have lived and worked in France since 1990.

I know the importance of a precise translation. No matter what the function of the document, the translation must render the very same meaning and style as the original. If you need an administrative letter translated for your own purposes you need to know its importance and if any action is required of you. Similarly, the translation of a document aimed at potential customers must offer a good image of your company and be as persuasive as the original copy. You know how much you spend on translations. What you cannot be sure of is how much revenue you have missed out on because of non-existent or poor translations. Quality is essential to a high performing business, and I am committed to producing high quality work.

Proof Reading»

Are you sending out the right message? People might not tell you so, but they do notice bad spelling and grammar and make judgements about you and your business as a result. Effective English which flows smoothly and remains in the same register can have a positive impact on the image your company projects to the public. If you have any doubts about the standard of English in your documents or on your website, I am here to help you.
