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

France - Last active: 2 days 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).

English - Mandarin Chinese Translator

Taiwan - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

I'm a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and fluent speaker of English. I've helped numerous business owners and individuals enter the Chinese marketplace. In order to achieve a successful project, I listen to what client needs and make sure which Chinese spoken areas client targets, so I know which writing systems or dialects I should translate to. Due to the fact that the majority of the Mandarin speaking population uses Simplified Chinese, I'm generally asked to translate to this writing system. However, I'm also seeking opportunities to promote Traditional Chinese. Most of the projects I have on oDesk are translating from English into Simplified Chinese. Since I'm not native English speaker, I can't claim to present error-free results. Unless clients don't mind and are willing to give me this offer, I usually don't accept Chinese to English translation job. I know how important trust, understanding and communication are. Clients' feedback proves how seriously I took each project no matter its complexity. I endeavor to build a great professional reputation. Finally, I'm open to any suggestions or critics. Thank you!
