I had the pleasure of translating two splendid volumes on the artistic and architectural riches to be found in France's embassies in Ottawa and Washington. Both volumes were historical in scope, reaching back to the founding of embassies, as well as expert treatises in the fine and decorative arts.
France's ambassador to Canada, François Delattre, congratulated me, in a personal note, for the "very high quality" of my translation and invited me to Ottawa for a tour of the treasures I had spent a very happy month describing.
