Satisfied customers who keep asking for more

You'd like to specialize in beauty translation?

Translation is your core business, and you have a passion for cosmetics. You’d like to combine the two and make a career of it, but…

… Maybe you don’t feel competent enough in this field, not least because you haven’t yet mastered the terminology and key concepts, and you’ve never really tried to understand the industry.

… Maybe you’re frustrated by the lack of resources available to you to develop your skills, you’d like something that help you understand both translation and beauty, but it’s always one or the other.

Don’t worry, I’ve been there too, and it hasn’t stopped me from making a living from my passion!

Imagine if you were skilled in beauty translation!

Imagine if you could one day:

  • Have acquired all the key concepts related to cosmetics
  • Master the industry’s terminology
  • Know how to translate different types of documents for beauty brands
  • Have access to the resources you need to save time on a daily basis
  • Benefit from the support of other translators like you

But above all, imagine finally feeling confident, legitimate and competent!

Does that sound like a dream to you? Then I think I can help!

Who am I?

My name is Floriane, I’m a translator since 2018, self-employed since 2021, and now a beauty translation mentor. My mission is to help translators specialize in cosmetics because I’m convinced that you can turn your passion into expertise.

I’ve translated various types of documents for world-renowned beauty brands, I’ve attended hours and hours of cosmetics training courses, I’ve read hundreds of books. And I’ve gathered over 100 members in the first version of the community.

Introducing the LJT Academy!

After taking the long road to beauty specialization on my own, I decided to bring together all the knowledge I had accumulated in the LJT Academy, a comprehensive 8-week training course for specializing in beauty translation.

This online course is based on a unique method with 3 pillars:

  1. Discovering the translation market and the cosmetics market to learn all about the industry
  2. Discovering key concepts and terminology in several beauty niches
  3. Discovering the different types of documents to be translated for beauty brands

All training exercises are designed to help you put the knowledge you’ve acquired into practice, while contributing to a collaborative glossary! Because if we all pull together, we can create a complete resource to work with!

It’s for you if..:

  • You’re a translator, interpreter (or even a copywriter)
  • You’re employed, freelance or just graduated in translation
  • You want to specialize in cosmetics


Here’s the training program. It is designed to be completed in 8 weeks, with one to two hours of work per week.

N.B.: this training course is fully accessible online, whenever and wherever you want. The videos have been pre-recorded (only in French for the moment, but I’ll soon record them all in English!), and I’m available to answer your questions and give you feedback on the exercises via Discord. I answer all messages within 24 hours (excluding weekends, public holidays and my vacation).

What's included

Here’s what’s included:

  • Access to the training platform for 16 weeks
  • Access to a personal progress tracking page to submit exercises and receive feedback, also for 16 weeks

  • Lifetime* access to a community space specially dedicated to the LJT Academy within the Jolies Traductrices Discord server.

*Lifetime = legally speaking, it’s not correct to grant “lifetime” access, so I’d like to make it clear that access will be included for the duration of the course, i.e. for as long as the course continues to exist.

Because a demo is worth a thousand words

This training course is only available in French at the moment, but I’ve planned to adapt it in English.

Here's what they say


For the time being, the training is provided entirely in French (videos, texts, resources provided in the training area), but I plan to adapt the training course to English. Discussions on the dedicated community space are also held in French. On the other hand, the knowledge base is multilingual (the body text is in English, and there are terminology entries in English, French and Spanish for now).

Time is our most precious resource, which is why the LJT Academy has been designed to fit any schedule. The course can be completed in 8 weeks, with one or two hours of work per week, but you’ll have access to the training area for 16 weeks, which gives you plenty of time to finish it!

The primary aim of the course is to give you all the knowledge you need to translate texts for the beauty industry. I’ve included a few tips for finding customers in the market discovery section, but it’s up to you to prepare your prospecting material (CV, portfolio, etc.) and actively prospect for customers!

It’s a great option if you’ve got the time and aren’t in a hurry. It took me a few years to accumulate all the knowledge I share in the LJT Academy, so it’s up to you whether you want to take your time, or whether you want to benefit from a system that allows you to specialize in 8 weeks!
