France - Last active: 21 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).

Editor, Writer, FR-EN Translator

United States - Last active: 1 day 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.

France - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 10

Experienced French native translator and writer, I am looking to work with you on translation, writing, blogging and proofreading projects. I am bilingual French-English. I have been working in English for the past three years and I have lived in four different countries, as well as travelled around the world for the past year. I am now starting a career as a freelancer, in the hope of becoming a digital nomad. I am currently based in France. I am currently writing regularly for two travel websites, besides my own travel blog. In the past, I have worked for three years as a technical translator in a publishing company, where I was promoted in a year as Translation Coordinator. I translated university manuals from French to English and English to French in various fields (chemistry, physics, electronics, geography, maths, medicine...), all the while managing a team of 20 translators and their projects and reviewing the quality of their work. I have also worked in three different French publishing companies, working on book layouts, proofreading, copyediting, working on illustrations and equations, writing various documents and so on. Two of those companies were focusing on literature, while the last one was scientific. I am a prolific travel blogger and my blog has become one of the most influential French travel blogs. I can write blog articles and provide content (articles, interviews, series, photography, video) related to travel and tourism in French and English. I have two masters, one in publishing and one in political science. Please let me know how I can help you on your different projects and if you have any questions. I value communication and will be fully available by email and Skype for future projects. I work as a fulltime freelancer and can dedicate the time and attention needed to successfully bring about your various projects.
