Zoë Blowen-Ledoux

Specializations: Marketing and communications, agriculture, Aboriginal issues, scientific popularization, ecology and sustainable development

In a nutshell: Hailing from a bicultural entrepreneurial family in Maine, Zoë moved to Montréal to learn French at 19 and never left. An avid networker, enthusiastic organizer and all-around communicator, she began freelancing in 2004 and has since been very active in Quebec’s language industry. Specializing in culturally sensitive and high-visibility documents for publication, she started Zozita Translations in 2004 and helped found the Carrefour des langagiers entrepreneurs in 2007. The Chameleon Language Collective is her latest collaborative venture.

Where you’ll find her when she’s not at her computer: In the garden, checking out an unrealistic number of books from the library or, on a truly good day, enjoying the sun with her husband and daughters

Education: a BA in French literature and anthropology from Université de Montréal and a graduate diploma in translation from Concordia University (Montréal)
