    I am a French native who's been living in English speaking countries for many years. After completing a college degree, I started doing various translation jobs from English to French and vice versa. I notably worked on the adaptation of scripts for the TV show, The Simpsons, as well as some full length movies (The Simpsons, Yes Man). Benefiting from this experience, I do more than mere translations. I adapt, localize and transcreate texts which means I find equivalences to puns, wordplays, idioms, colloquialisms and cultural references, juggling with words until they sound good to the ear, flowing naturally with style, while keeping the essence, spirit, tone and emotions of the original text. I've worked on all kind of texts, from religious sermons to call-girls descriptions... and even the odd funeral speech. Kids book, work contracts, financial reports, SEO analysis, board games, movie subtitles, user manuals, video games, you name it. And this content was for all kind of media and formats: websites, mobiles apps, DVD, etc. It would be a mistake to think that there is a simple word-for-word equivalence between two given languages, and that translation is a straightforward process. A literal translation doesn't take into consideration many parameters, like the constraints imposed by context, syntax and figures of speech. It is necessary to understand the internal system of a language in order to produce the same effect in both languages, something artifical intelligence can't achieve (not yet at least...) And of course a good translation takes more than good language skills, it also requires research, proofreading and copywriting skills. Some clients seem to be worried that the translator would use an automatic software or Google translate. Well, while I might use a dictionary if I have a doubt about a word, rest assured that I never, ever use any of these tools. It seems pretty obvious but apparently some some people do... I also attach a lot of importance to the communication with my clients, which I think is paramount to the success of a project. I make sure to stay in contact throughout the project and don't hesitate to ask questions if I have a doubt about the context or anything else in order to make sure the translation will be 100% accurate. The speed and rate of the translation can vary significantly depending on the vocabulary register and the semantic and lexical fields. I'd be happy to give you a time and price quote if you can show me an exemple of your text. I also do: - transcription (converting audio speeches to text). - proofreading - Creation of subtitles and encoding them in your videos.  less

    Skilled and professional Italian interpreter, translator, proofreader with a Master's degree in Conference Interpretation and a Bachelor's degree in interpretation and translation for English and French. I speak fluently these two languages and I recently added Slovak as third working language. I worked as interpreter and translator on many occasions and I also had the possibility to train my interpreting skills at the European institutions and NATO in Brussels. I am a skilled, accurate and professional interpreter and translator with a great passion for foreign languages. After a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Translation and Conference Interpreting, I have been working in this field for 5 years, and I had the possibility to show my skills on many occasions. I worked as interpreter in conferences, business meetings, workshops and exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad (Luxembourg and Brussels). As translator, I translated different kinds of texts and websites, which have strengthened my knowledge and expertise in many different fields (IT, engeneering, electronics, finance, social domain). Other than English and French, I speak German (I got two Goethe Institut certifications, level A2 and B1) but my recent passion is Slovak. I have been studying it for 3 years now, and I spent the last 6 months in Bratislava to improve my level of Slovak language. If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me!
