Reliability and quality

France - Last active: 2 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.

Top-rated Editor, Writer, Fr-Eng 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.

Independent Writer & Translator / Database Develop...

France - Last active: 1 day 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.

Experienced English - French translator, proofread...

France - Last active: 5 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.
