Translation/Localization Consultant

New Zealand - Last active: 05/24/2013

Professional independent translator with 15+ year’s experience in translation, 12+ years in software localization (translation). I worked for New Zealand Government Māori Language Commission / Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori for over 20 years. Part of my role there was to administer Kura Reo, week-long immersion courses run by the commission. Through these and other courses I attended, I was able to attain the Certificate in Māori Language Translation whilst at the commission and was the Manager Māori Language Services for my final 2 years with the commission. While at the commission I worked on I.T. localization projects, as a translator, an editor, a moderator, and a manager. Due to this excellent background I was able to become an independent translation consultant, which I have been for over 3 years in which time I have honed my translation and localization skills. I also do other types of translation work for example for government, education, health type services, annual reports, promotion and advertising etc.

Translation, Transcription, Text

Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 4

I am a 34 year old freelance writer and translator from Germany and am looking for translation, editing/proofreading and transcription jobs from all over the globe. I am well-travelled and well-educated, including a BA in American Studies, Journalism and Comparative Literature and a Masters in Literary Writing. Over the past ten years, I have worked and collected valuable experiences in a variety of fields and businesses which now enables me to tailor my work to each of my client's individual needs and requirements. The cliché of German virtues is just that, but there is a bit of truth in every cliché. Personally, giving those extra 10 percent on top of what is expected from me is just as much a part of my work as are efficiency, accuracy, punctuality, creativity and keeping a clear head when things aren't going the way they are supposed to - all aspects of being a professional that should go without saying. I am also a published and award-winning writer.
