Who we are

Based in Northern California's Sonoma County, we are a global provider of French to English and English to French translation and interpretation services, as well as French instruction services.

HBTranslation provides translating services to corporate and individual clients in fields such as IT, the wine industry, legal/insurance, tourism, hospitality, construction and personal business.  These services are conducted face-to-face and via web.

Hervé Boblet, the founder of HBTranslation, has dual French/American citizenship.  Although French is his native language, forty years of practicing English, both colloquially and professionally, has enabled him to be completely bilingual.

Hervé teaches French at all pedagogical levels with the Alliance Française as well as for Bay Area individuals/businesses.

Having spent fifteen years as an attorney in international law firms, Hervé is able to provide specialized translating services in the legal, financial and insurance fields.

This experience, combined with those he has had in the United States in sales and marketing (construction and insurance), has made him at ease with all areas of business.  HBTranslation can therefore offer an extensive range of professional and personal translations as well as interpretation in both languages, ideally adapted to your needs.
