Yves Fontaine

Napier was saddened to hear the news that Yves Fontaine passed away at the end of March this year following his battle with cancer.

Having been a key member of the team- working as a freelance French translator for Napier for several years, Yves will be greatly missed by the Napier team. Yves had worked with many members of the Napier team over the years, and was always a delight to talk to, as well as a truly lovely person.

It was very sad to hear the passing of Yves, he was a very talented translator and always produced great work, my thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.” – Tristan Van den Berg, Marketing Specialist

“I would just like to say what a pleasant, helpful and thoroughly professional chap Yves was.  I don’t think I can recall him ever turning down a translation request, regardless of whether he was on holiday (overseas), or latterly when he was struggling with his illness. He was working right up until his untimely death.  I think that summed up what kind of person Yves was (even though I never met him) – totally reliable and a true professional. He will be missed.” – Clare Reader, PR Specialist

Our thoughts are with Yves’s friends and family at this difficult time.
