A wide range of fields, but uncompromising on quality!
Her long experience in interpreting and translating has given her a good grasp of numerous and varied subjects, as well as tried and tested methods to address relatively new ones.
Since it's impossible to be an expert in all fields, one hallmark of an experienced professional is to know his/her limits. Janet will not take on a commitment if she feels unsure of providing the quality you deserve. But thanks to formal and informal networking and direct experience working together on assignments, she can often put you in contact with a colleague who is truly competent in your subject.
…where some subjects have become favourites
With loyal customers, the same subjects often come up again and become familiar. As time goes by, it's almost impossible to be caught out on some topics! That's one way that "specialization" grows…
Of course, the strong points of western France's economy also explain certain salient features on Janet's agenda. So you most likely won't be surprised to see that the ocean and nature take centre stage.
