    English-Spanish Translator

    Argentina - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello. I'm Santiago Rosales, a 25 years old college student from Argentina, currently studying a IT engineering career. I have 4 years working on translating many Android apps and websites. My main translation fields are technology, mobile, applications, games, websites, e-commerce sites, user guides, programming related documentation, geological papers, education and economy. Also I'm experienced with legal websites and documents. I'm highly communicative with my clients in order to provide the most accurate translation. With a 60 WPM typing rate I'm the most indicated when it involves projects with a very short timeframe. My average speed is above 900 translated words per hour, and training every day in order to increase my speed, while keeping the quality at the highest possible level. Update: Over the past year I've been involved in several hospital brochures and stock market books translations, along with engineering and safety handouts and slides. Also, I had a high responsibility managing content from 10 languages(Europe/Asia) for Polaroid projects. Which requires a higher attention to the detail and knowledge about formatting for each specific language.

    Mathematician, Programmer and Translator

    Germany - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 5

    I just finished my studies of mathematics with focus on physics and computer sciences in Iceland. Next to my studies, I have been programming already for several years on a freelance basis and provide professional translation services. The programs that I created so far mostly are GUI applications under Windows, as well as web-based applications using PHP and javascript. In addition to these experiences, I have also intensive knowledge of C/C++, Matlab, R, and various other programming languages. You can see some of my programs in my portfolio and on my website. In addition to being a programmer, I have also several years of experience as a translator. As a German native speaker, I mostly translate from English to German, and occasionally from German to English. I have lived abroad for more than three years now, and therefore know a couple of other languages as well. These include French, Icelandic, Swedish, Dutch and Bulgarian. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Best wishes, Tom Schiller
