Team

Here is a just a glimpse of Geo network:

Emilie Lefeuvre (founder of Geo)

After a Masters in Translation and a year travelling the US as part of a sales force team, Emilie spent several years in the marketing department of a large real estate firm. Her passion for languages, taste for travel and digital inclinations lead her back to the field of translation. A talented team builder, the past five years have been mostly devoted to project management. Nevertheless, translation and copywriting are still a big part of her life. So much so that in early 2018 she published her first book for children.

Monica Guy

Passionate about languages and communication, Monica has been writing, editing, translating and managing international content projects for over 14 years. She works for some of the biggest players in travel, IT and engineering, helping them to create effective content with real benefits for their bottom line. She also runs an online language training company.

Victoria Barbazanges

A native Brit of Irish descent, Victoria spent her childhood moving throughout Europe and the USA – where she received her degree in foreign language and culture studies – before settling in France in 1997. Having spent a few years gaining valuable complementary skills at a law firm in Paris, her desire to work with languages led her to teach English whilst venturing into the world of translation. She successfully launched her own freelance business in 2014 and has made a name for herself as a talented travel copywriter and translator.
