Reliability and quality

France - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

French native certified translator. Precise, reliable and experienced in translations from English (Us and British) to French in technical, business, marketing, IT, legal, travel, food and fashion areas, Apps and websites localizations. I am recognized by and declared to the French Administration as a translator, producing invoices of my work for your business bookkeeping needs (my tax numbers are Siren n° 799 636 980 and Siret n° 799 636 980 00010). I can assist you by translating and writing French-language texts that are more relevant to a French audience, with the proper Gallic « tournure », twist. The art of translation is as old as written literature. Translation must take into account constraints that include context, the rules of grammar of the two languages, their writing conventions, and their idioms. A common misconception is that there exists a simple word-for-word correspondence between any two languages, and that translation is a straightforward mechanical process; such a word-for-word translation, however, cannot take into account context, grammar, conventions, and idioms. To be a good translator, it is necessary to understand the internal system of a language and the context of the entire text being translated. Thus, the translator will be able to produce the same effect in both languages. Very aware of the new leading technologies, my extensive exposure to the English language from an early age and my years of experience as a translator are my strongest points. You’ll get a turnkey file, fully edited and produced and ready for immediate use. Prompt Service: Turnarounds of under 24 hours! Prompt communication, available in a variety of means. Software: Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Poedit.Wordfast/AEGISUB. I live in France, about two and a half hours from Paris and one hour from both Nantes and Rennes. I have a fast broadband internet connection, a state-of-the art computer system as well as numerous desk reference materials. I sincerely hope my application will attract your attention and I'll be happy to give you further details if necessary.. Please inquire about project pricing and long-term assistance so we can develop a plan that works for you.

Freelance Designer

France - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 14

Making beautiful things and making you smile. That's my job. Check out my portfolio here : www.behance.net/atlal /* --- MY WORK ---*/ 4 years of experience and a lot of passion later, here I am. On the fly, always up to date and responsive to your expectations. /* --- LANGUAGES ---*/ Native language : french. Native level (C2) : french, english Can understand/translate from (besides the ones mentioned above) : arabic, italian Can translate to : french & english, but particularly french. /* --- CODING ---*/ I prefer directly coding the websites I'm designing. Wasting time making it on photoshop first is something I'm not very fond of. I have some experience in php, mysql and jQuery but my 'ninja grasp' is in designing and putting it together html/css. But I have the ability to work with these languages, otherwise I wouldn't mention them :) /* --- TIME - PAY ---*/ I am always available and don't require much pay. I'm hard working and can work on projects even if they are time limited. I do not have a limit of working hours per week because I am not on any 'big' project right now that would take my time. So I'm a full timer. I can work as much as you need. NOTE CONCERNING WORK HOURS : - PLEASE consider my timezone if I'm not replying to your messages right away : it may be 3 AM, and I may be dreaming about your project. I usually reply within 5 minutes of your request, if not immediately. After long hours of hard work there's nothing better than a happy and satisfied customer, who I hope will be you.

Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

United States - Last active: 22 hours ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 10

My facility with words derives from a love of literature and a background in French, teaching English, and editing. Over the past 7 years, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of texts, from academic papers to blogs to web content to novels, and various style guides, including AP, APA, MLA, and Chicago. Though my heart lies in fiction, I'm equally at home with non-fiction; my particular interest areas include sociology, anthropology, psychology, environmental issues, healthy living, nutrition, women's studies, feminist theory, queer theory, critical theory, and critical race theory. However, I welcome all types of texts. Let me help make your pen indeed mightier than the sword, whether it is simply proofreading for small errors or copy editing/line editing to improve structure, flow, word choice, clarity, coherence, and the like. With me, your texts and documents are in good hands.

EXPERT Bilingual ENGLISH/FRENCH/U.K. ENG. Translat...

France - Last active: 22 hours ago - Tests: 21 - Portfolio: 8

As a French native state-employed English Teacher for quite a number of years, I can provide accurate translations from English into standard French from FRANCE, and the other way round. I worked for "Gengo.com" for a year only, but unlike them, so far, I can translate into genuine UK English all types of documents at the rate of $0.06/word, that can be as low as $0.04 for high volumes starting from 3,000 words ( and $0.08/word for technical and legal translation jobs), and my test- results speak for themselves. Given my background, I can deliver truly academic, as well as audience-oriented translations. However, I now refuse to translate content for e-commerce sites selling illegal products in FRANCE, as the shoppers would have problems with the French customs, or even worse, with the police. I also refuse to proofread what appears to be plain machine-translation or clearly post-edited machine translation jobs, from either other contractors (you should just ask for a refund!) or customers. Fair enough, isn't it? Now, please have a look at my portfolio, and you will see what I mean! Finally, I now have experience in simultaneous 3-way translation over the phone (see my profile).

Experienced English - French translator, proofread...

France - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 11

Perfectly fluent in English and French, I'm qualified to translate from one language to the other with equal ease and proficiency and with an in-depth grasp of both languages and cultures. For me, translating is like a game: juggling with words until they express the same meaning but also the same spirit and vitality in the target language as they did initially. Over the last 7 years, I have acquired significant experience translating and proofreading websites, press books, sustainable development reports, product catalogues and various marketing materials and business correspondence. I am seeking opportunities to apply my language skills on a larger scale starting, why not, with your business. I also have extensive experience as a VA and teaching English as a foreign language with tailor-made lessons for any level.

Independent Writer & Translator / Database Develop...

France - Last active: 22 hours ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 6

As a professional writer my sole goal is to interpret and crystallize the message meant for your audience. By presenting clear, concise and consistent content your company or project becomes more memorable to its visitors and clients. My aims are to draw attention to what is being said, and to clarify your ideas. My work as an editor began in my parents' Print and Copy business writing resumes and editing business letters for local East Harlem patrons. This context allowed me to develop a keen eye for grammatical errors, format and flow with a professional tone. I further developed this skill in college where I worked with students at undergraduate and graduate levels for editing & proofreading essays, theses and blog content. That said, I have a good amount of experience with a diverse range of topics and am as familiar with academic styles as idealizing pieces for SEO. While I am not writing or editing under contract or for my blog, I work hard to cultivate my spheres of interest, which I narrow down to the visual arts, music, lifestyle, fashion (men's and women's), international politics, and brand strategies. I recently completed studies under an International Management Masters program in Lyon, France and maintain control of strategic management and international marketing tools. I am very familiar with deadlines across all my projects and enjoy incentive based work. I believe my position as an American in Europe can be very valuable to your team as I benefit from a unique exposure that many of my competitors do not, and have the ability to represent concepts with an international appeal. Thank you for your time and the possible opportunity.

Translator/Economist

El Salvador - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 7

I have a degree in Business and Economics and work part time doing cost projections, accounting, process streamlining and assisting the administration of a large janitorial company in San Salvador, El Salvador. I excel at writing down processes and business plans, and I'm helping the aforementioned company implement procedures under the ISO 9001 norm. I'm well adept at using MS Excel, Access, and Visio as tools for my work. I'm also trilingual: I know English, Spanish, and French, with knowledge of basic Mandarin as well (it's a work in progress). Languages are a passion, so I often tutor friends/acquaintances wanting to learn Spanish/English in my free time and enjoy translating in general. Studying for my degree and taking courses in photography, culinary arts, gardening, and music in English, Spanish, and French has expanded my vocabulary in these three languages, enabling me to be a fast and accurate translator, with impeccable writing style (I use Strunk & White for English). As a curious fact about me, I enjoy classical music (opera) and have been training almost 4 years to sing it. So I'm also up for the odd singing or voice-over job.
