Santiago Rosales

Santiago Rosales

English-Spanish Translator

Argentina - 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.

Julian Z.

Translator English - German

Germany - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

The past years confronted me with several interesting challenges regarding my career. On the one hand I worked as an Software Engineer, focusing on developing and planning software projects and realizing them in PHP/C#/VBS. On the other hand I've come in touch with several advertising related topics. Most of my clients have been small companies with anything from 5 to 20 employees, which required flexibility and the readiness to delve into new topics and tasks. My free time added a new layer of skills and practice due to the fact that I used it to write articles and blog entries, most notably about computer games and poetry. Nowadays I'm working as an Information Manager which leaves several of my acquired skills useless - I want to use and develop them further.
