About Us


French Press was founded in 2011 by Xavier Amouyal, Engineer in Signal Processing, MSc in Maths and aggregate level teacher.

After 5 years as an editor and QA manager in a translation agency, his wife Yael, Engineer in Food and Biotechnology and researcher in the medical field, joined him to create a specialized med-tech translation team.

Xavier and Yael are the core team of French Press, surrounded by a group of qualified, talented and devoted translators they have handpicked.

“Before creating French Press, we worked in our original fields”, say the husband-and-wife team, “But when we began volunteering as translators on a regular basis, we realized we were both passionate about it. So we turned our passion into a full-time profession.”

We hope to share this passion with you, and look forward to working with you in the near future.
