They work with us:
Since 2017 Hilary Dyer has been translating our guidebooks, OmegaRoc app and website into English. She is now manager of the translation agency SETS. Hilary is also a mountain enthusiast: starting out as a trail runner she later took up climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing and walking after moving to the French Alps… You can find her (trying to hide) in some photos in the Bavella – Corsica. Escalades choisies guidebook.
N.B.: We have done some translations ourselves (these sections are easy to spot, they are clearly written in good old Franglais).
Since the beginning in 2005 (Falaises de Corse, 1st edition), all our books have been printed in France. Since 2017, printing has been carried out by the printing company SEPEC. We want especially to thank Alexandre Dahan (sales manager), who is always available and provides good advice.
We take most of the pictures you will find in our guidebooks ourselves, but many others are kindly given to us by both amateur or professional photographers. A huge thank you for their volunteer help.
