  • Arabic English translator, Subtitler, English copywriter

    Because I constantly get invitations from people wanting to pay extremely low rates for quality work done in no time, I would like to state my rates. But first, a few words: I am an experienced, educated, well read, meticulous and committed professional. I am not a beginner or someone trying to make extra money on the side; freelance translation is my job and the only way I make a living. Please do not contact me if you are not looking for high quality work and are willing to pay for it. Thank you! :) My rates (all excluding oDesk fee): Hourly rate of $12 is only applicable if you are hiring me for a part/full time job (20 hrs per week min.) Rate per source word = $0.04 ($0.03 for larger projects) Rate per source minute for subtitling projects (translation and timecoding) = $2 per source minute if script is provided, $3 per source minute if script is not included. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OVERVIEW: I started out my career providing Arabic subtitles to Masreya Media, a leading subtitling company in Egypt that provides services to international TV channels. I then started to provide translations to various companies as a freelancer. In 2008, I joined the outsourcing community as a translation provider and started to build my experience in website/application translation. In 2009, I took on a project with Rushglobe, Inc. to localize promotional material for a health product to be distributed in the Middle East, a project that was cancelled later on. Since 2010, I have been providing translation services to PrivateHealthcare UK, a leading medical travel information company in the United Kingdom. Even though my career revolves mainly around translation from English to Arabic, I am experienced and interested in writing English material from articles to web content, and from creative to technical. I specialize in website and application translation through content management systems, as well as translating medical content and material. I also specialize in Arabic subtitling of films and TV shows, as well as in translating and writing material about food and cooking (recipes, tips, TV shows, etc.) As for writing, I am mostly interested in writing about relationships, anthropology, biological anthropology, and other topics involving social sciences and behavior; however, I would be willing to write about any other topics as well. As you can see in my profile, I scored 1st place in the US English Basic Skills test and in the 10% percentile in other writing and editing tests. I have near-native fluency in the English language and consider it my mother tongue as it is the language I prefer to write, speak and even think with.  less

    My name is Rong Tian and I am Chinese. My undergraduate major is English and I came to USA 2 years ago. I have recently completed a master degree in Business Administration from the University of Kansas. During my undergraduate study in Soochow University in China, I worked as a part-time English translator (both oral and written) for the Office of International Cooperation and Exchange of my school. After graduation, I worked for several years in the Passenger Transport Department of the railway station in my hometown. After I came to USA, I got some working experience as a consultant for local hospitals. I was always very enthusiastic about my study and my work. I earned a 3.74 GPA for my English major and a 3.89 GPA for my MBA. When I worked as a part-time English translator, I won a reputation as being very hard-working and extremely efficient to meet deadlines. During my work at the railway station, I won high praise for being a fast learner, and for having the virtues of intellectual humility and responsibility.  less
