Mr

Portugal - Last active: 04/18/2013 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 2

I would like to introduce myself as an experienced linguist working as a translator, proofreader/QA professional and experienced localization tester. I am, first and foremost, a native Portuguese translator that boasts a full grasp of European Portuguese and a deep understanding of Brazilian Portuguese. I have a high level of fluency/full command of the English language including a deep understanding of the culture from having lived in the UK for several years. My academic background features several years studying both in Portugal and the UK and are relevant to the type of work I develop. I can provide good references from previous employers. With regards to my fields of expertise, I am quite knowledgeable in Information Technology, but I deal with a range of different technical translation subjects on a daily basis. Recently, I started revising patents and similar legal documents which require a great level of attention to detail. I also have a background as a transcriptionist and my 73 words-per-minute typing speed is no stranger to that mark. I have recently started providing voiceover recordings for Portuguese (European and Brazilian) and English. I am confident working with the most common industry-standard software packages, such as MS Office (advanced user), Adobe Creative Suite 5 (Photoshop and Indesign in particular) and major CAT tools (SDL Trados Studio, Wordfast, MemoQ). With regards to the quality of my work, I am confident that you will not be disappointed by my meticulous ethic and the results obtained, some of which can be found below in the samples section. I look forward to your contact! :-)

Transcriptionist

Croatia - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

As a transcriptionist I've been working with transcripts in technical field, economy classes/lectures, teacher/student interviews and I've done several legal transcriptions, as well as medical classes/lectures. My strongest fields are technology, internet marketing, real estate and general discussions. I'm a skilful, pretty fast and accurate typist (85+ wpm) I deliver very good TAT (7 hours for 1 hour of audio, with included proofreading). I pay a lot of attention to research, when it comes to working on some things I'm not that familiar with, unknown subjects so I always strive to get the names and all the spellings correct. I also proof my work before handing it back to my clients. My usual work involves using my default/general template, placing 5-minute timestamps and excluding the usual stuttering, mumbling, repeated words and such. Everything I'm unable to hear for the first time is labeled as inaudible, most of which I can deal with in my second run through the file, proofreading. I also do occasional work involving graphic, logo and print design. Feel free to browse through my portfolio to see my past work.
