  1. Andrew Harding

    Freelance translator and programmer.

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    I enjoy playing with LaTeX and have manually installed a LuaLaTeX installation, component by component and line of configuration by line of configuration. LaTeX is my preferred tool for most kinds of document production, and I've set test papers, reports and sales literature in it. I can produce source files which use either UTF-8 font-encoding and calls to the operating system for opentype/truetype, or which use the traditional escapes and the NFSS. I enjoy writing in C# and have designed a program that loads properties from different tables in MySQL, and manipulates them conditionally (based on the values of relevant fields in the MySQL table that drives the program) following the biochemical model that I am using. My program then writes the resulting data to CSV, where I have a script upload it to MySQL and also run Gnuplot. I can manually group and sub-total data in a spreadsheet of hundreds of thousands of lines, and, of course, construct multi-worksheet models using spreadsheets. I would consider myself to have an expert user's knowledge of Microsoft Word. I have used fields to properly set out documents, and also to construct templates where the user need only enter variable values into a prompt. I have been playing with HTML since I was about 14, and am easily able to hand-code it, and to apply CSS to it using id and class attributes. Ich habe Arikel zu Englisch von Italianisch, für einen Möbelkonzern und eine Telefonfirma, unter Freiberuflichaufträge, erfolgreich übersetzen, obwohl mein haupt sprachlich Projekt mein Deutsch erweitern ist. Mein Deutch ist praktisch aber kann ich nicht die Sprache ohne ein Wörterbuch sprechen, und mein Gehörbegriffsvermögen ist furchtbar. Ich habe, jedoch, eine strenge, fortgeschrittene Anfängers Lesenerkenntniss entwickelt: die Berner Zeitung ist meine haupte Quelle über internationalen Angelegenheiten und Wirtschaftnachrichten, und lese ich gern die gelegentlichen Roman (ich empfehle stark „Vermesserung der Welt”). [I have successfully translated articles into English from Italian for a furniture business and a telecom company under freelance contracts, although my main linguistic interest is improving my German. My German is functional but I cannot speak the language without a dictionary, and my aural comprehension is terrible. I have, however, developed a strong intermediate reading knowledge; the Berner Zeitung is my main source on international current affairs and business news, and I enjoy reading the occasional novel (I would highly recommend 'Vermesserung der Welt').]
