    Sabine C.

    Expert for translations, editing and ghostwriting

    United Kingdom - Last active: 7 days ago

    I am a German native speaker, but have been living in Kent/England for 25 years. I graduated from Bonn University in 1984 with an MA-equivalent (First State Exam) after studying English, French and German language and literature and teaching first-year-students during my final terms. I spent the 1978/9 winter term at Edinburgh University where I did a course about systemic grammar and the teaching of literature. I learned that the interpretation of poetry can be based on a matter-of-fact analysis of the structure and how it deviates from ordinary language. This made teaching poetry much easier and clearer, accessible even to sceptics who insisted that interpreting poetry was a matter of taste. After 18 months at the Wiesbaden Teacher Training College I got my teaching qualification (Second State Exam)and decided to teach abroad. With my experience in teaching A-level German I feel well equipped to tackle most translations from English to German or vice versa.

    Mobile Apps -- Web Development

    United States - Last active: 8 hours ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 12

    I have a BA (with honors) from the University of Iowa (also double majored in Linguistics). I also have a Web Development Professional Certificate from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. I have been developing apps for the iOS platform since 2009. I have also worked on native Android apps, and I have worked on and created several cross-platform hybrid apps using Apache Cordova (or Phonegap) as well as custom hybrid solutions. I am resourceful and self-motivated when finding applicable solutions to programming problems (it's like a fun puzzle...). In the past I always focused on Apple platforms and was an expert on the now antiquated Macintosh Toolbox of the 1990's. I used C/C++ on these old generation Macs and on UNIX boxes while studying computer science (we also used early Java on the workstations). I still have a sweet spot for native objective-c development on iOS. Recent projects have included custom Cordova / Phonegap plugins, applications which make use of bluetooth iBeacons (as well as Gimbal BLE beacons), and in the last year I have worked extensively with Location Services including GPS functionality and Geofences. In the early days of iOS development I worked a lot with audio processing and muti-touch interactions. I never really set out with the intent to become a project manager, but I communicate well and it seems my role in many gigs recently tends to creep in that direction.

    Not your average translator. EN/DE into CZ

    Czech Republic - Last active: 29 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    I have been translating from German and English into my native Czech since 1998, specializing in marketing, IT and technical documents. Wondering why I’m not your average translator? For one, my clients appreciate my unfailing attention to detail. They rely on my keen intuition. They also benefit from my interest in modern technology and new developments in the industry. I’m all about straightforward communication and deliver top-notch services with an excellent price/performance ratio. I use the latest software (SDL Trados 2014, Across, MemoQ) to ensure quality and streamlining, but I also make full use of far more important tools: my head and my heart. ► Marketing & PR Send me your marketing copy and I will turn it into readable, compelling Czech: brochures, flyers, catalogues, press releases, social media content, or entire websites. Your readers won’t have to contend with cringe-worthy phrasing, questionable terminology or embarrassing errors. ► IT, telecommunications & websites Every translator has a sweet spot, and this is mine. More than fifteen years of translating and keeping up to date with the latest trends means that this sector is right up my alley. I’m also perfectly comfortable with programmers’ jargon and terms like “big data”, “SEO” and “UX” don’t exactly set my knees to knocking. ► Technical I can give you a clear and accurate translation of manuals, technical specifications or other technical documents. I have a particular soft spot for mechanical and electrical engineering, automation, automotive, and commercial kitchen equipment. ► Software & SAP localization I have plenty of experience in IT and a basic knowledge of programming and software development, so I can translate applications, both small and large, for a result that is technically accurate and user-friendly. I respect the OS-specific terminology (Windows or OS X) as well as your style guide. I’m also happy to translate SAP applications directly in SE63. SAPterm? Absolutely!

    Austria - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 1

    My two core competencies are social media optimization and translation (English/German). As a native German-speaker and thanks to my seven-year stay in South Africa I have insight into how languages are actually used compared towhat you learn in school. I have worked as a freelance translator and am doingtranslations now through odesk.com. Over the past 15 years I have worked in different fields of administration, sales, social media and search engine optimization. I worked 10 years in Austria both in sales and SEO before I moved to South Africa to be in sales for an online shop of a large electronic consumer company. I currently live in Austria working as a self-employed social media consultant and translator.
