Laura Thépot – translations is a freelance translation service, specialized in art and design.

Born in 1983, raised in both the U.S.A. and France, with an International Baccalauréat, specialized in English languages and literature, I went on to study design. I got my masters in fine arts, with a Major in landscape design, from the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg in 2011.

After a few years of working as a landscape architect in various agencies, I decided to become a freelance translator, thus contributing my expertise of both design and languages.
