Stuart Anthony Stilitz, Ph.D., Certified Translator.

Stuart Anthony Stilitz, Ph.D., a certified French-English translator, was born in London in the United Kingdom. He earned a B.A. in political science from the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. in sociology from the Université du Québec à Montréal (1997). His thesis deals with the Montreal Protocol on the ozone layer and its impact on developing countries, non-governmental organizations (ONGs) and new technologies. Mr. Stilitz has written numerous articles on climate change and the global environment, and on related topics such as international development, sustainable development, North-South relationships and ecology. He has also translated three books and hundreds of papers, articles, conferences and symposia on international relations, the co-operative movement, social economy, industrial conversion, job creation, industrial relations, urban planning, occupational health and safety, medicine, the environment, fine arts, travel and culture. In 1987, he began working as a freelance translator for the Translation Division of the Government of Canada, which accredited him as a French-English translator in 44 specialized fields. Since then, he has worked for both the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario. In 2004, the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes du Québec (OTTIAQ) granted him certification (Cert. T.). He also translates a wide variety of official documents (university transcripts and report cards; marriage, divorce, birth and death certificates; attestations). His clients include Le Monde Diplomatique (Internet-based, English version) and numerous academics and university-based researchers in Canada, Belgium and France.
