Reliability and quality

France - Last active: 1 day 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.

Ireland - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

I received my degree in English and French from the National University of Ireland in Galway, where I also pursued an MA in Medieval Studies, and I have recently been awarded a PhD in Classics at the same university (graduation in July). I have been teaching in the Department of Classics for the past 5 years,mostly Latin and Roman History; great part of my job has been, and still is, to read, correct and evaluate my students' essays as well as organize and coordinate courses with lecturers. I have been a member of the editorial committee of "The Imbas Journal: proceedings of the Imbas Conference of Medieval Studies," a lively journal collecting writings from some of the best up and coming young scholars in Europe and the US in the field of Classical, Late Antique and Medieval Studies. I presented papers related to my doctoral research in Cork, Galway, Leeds and twice at the International Congress of Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a yearly, world renowned appointment for medievalists. I am also a part time translator for the Psychology Department at the Universita' degli Studi di Torino, my work mainly focusing on translating academic articles on child psychology from Italian into English.Beside English and French, both of I am proficient in, and obviously Italian, my mother tongue, I can also work with Spanish. Since I have begun my career as a freelancer, I have been involved in several translation projects of both academic and creative pieces, as well as websites. I am currently editor and writer for the website lifeintaly.com, and I have been providing English translations from French to English to Dorcelle. I have very high standards of work and I am greatly efficient. I am extremely dedicated to my job, and I intend to provide always the best service to my employer. Last, but certainly not least, I have a fundamental, ever running passion for what I do, both in University and as a translator and editor: this is the strongest guarantee of my efficiency.
