    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

    I am a native English speaking Ba hons graduate in French with German. I have experience translating between English and French or German on a vast array of different topics. I have also specifically studied the techniques required to translate effectively and efficiently. A broad education is vital in the learning of modern languages and as such I have an extensive vocabulary on a number of subjects. I can speak both French and German fluently and have spent time living and studying in France and Austria to enhance my understanding of the languages. I also believe myself to have an excellent command of English. It is my aim to provide translations of the highest accuracy, at a reasonable rate, very quickly. I have completed a number of projects on oDesk as a translator and have a 5 star rating as my clients are all very happy with my work.  less

    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).  less
