I am a chartered linguist, who provides French and English language services: translation, business support and an independent minute taking service. I help you to better connect with your clients by speaking their language.


The mission of Translation & Secretarial Services is to enhance your client communication and business processes by providing high-quality, bespoke French and English language services. I take care of language requirements, allowing you to save time and money while concentrating on your core work.

I’m Julie Barber and I set up and manage Translation & Secretarial Services.

I am a Chartered Translator who also has great office experience! I have worked for small, medium and large companies and spent 17 years working for the board of a subsidiary of the Bouygues Group, a large French multinational, in a bilingual environment providing executive support and a translation service. I worked alongside the FD & Company Secretary and was responsible for overseeing the Company Secretarial administration of a pool of 23 companies.
