Prior to Coffee Cup

Prior to Coffee Cup I already worked as a Technical Writer and Translator. Actually, I started to work as a Freelance just before 2000. During those many years, I worked for more than 30 companies, mainly based in France, but also in Germany and in the United Kingdom.

Most of them were startups, but some were medium-sized enterprises too. Coffee Cup is a renewed way to offer services in Technical Writing and Translations, relying on a solid experience.

Prior to Coffee Cup

Some years ago, I founded a company to sale the bags and jewels I made. I created and managed two websites: a corporate one, using a nice template, and an online shop that I created and managed with Prestashop. Photos, images, social networks, newsletters… I made it all by myself. It was a good experience!
