    I am a French native, and I speak English fluently. I have spent 2 years in the United States to study and work. I studied for one semester at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND as an exchange student. After that, I did two internships in Grand Forks, at the City's Urban Development department, and after that for a nonprofit agency. Upon completing my Master's Degree, I then worked for one year in that same nonprofit agency as a regular employee. I have passed both the TOEIC and TOEFL tests with great results - I obtained a grade of 114/120 on the TOEFL, and 980/990 on the TOEIC. My university schooling was strongly geared towards the learning of languages - I have completed a Master's Degree in the field of Applied Languages (English and Russian) specialized into Sustainable Development, Project Management and Communication. I have done a few translation jobs, that I found through my network of friends mostly - a juridical translation for a conference paper, some English to Russian translation for a touristic website, and then of course diverse translations in the course of my studies. I am an avid reader of French and English (mostly American) litterature. While not having a lot of experience in translation, I feel that my background, strong interest in languages and litterature, as well as a curious and interested attitude towards learning from different fields make me a great candidate for all kinds of translating jobs.  less

    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.  less
