    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

    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 23 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!
