    Macedonia - Last active: 1 month ago

    I am a graduated French, English and Macedonian translator and proofreader. I am an experienced and aspiring polyglot, eager to find new clients that require my services. I am very professional and always deliver on time. I find that research is a big part of our job as a translators and I agree completely on that matter. Being a project manager, translator and proofreader for over three years at a translation agency that only deals with foreign clients, helped me understand much better how this profession works and what's required of the translators. Wanting to become a full-time freelance translator, I assume every responsibility coming with the job and see every new project as an opportunity for a potential long-term collaboration with the client. My usual rate for translation is 0.04 Eur/word for translations, but I am always ready to negotiate.

    Canada - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    For more than a decade I have been a freelance proofreader and editor. I have edited books and articles on topics ranging from Holocaust Survivor Narratives to Perinatal Care. Over the last two years, I have further expanded my work to include copy-editing and formatting support for manuscripts and academic articles in preparation for publication. While my area of expertise is in non-fiction and academic texts, I am always eager to work on something new and different. I enjoy helping others enhance their writing and continue to publish my own academic work, including those developed through my MA and PhD research. I am also an experienced performer and stage manager. I have a Fine Arts degree in acting and numerous credits as a performer, primarily in theatre, but also including work in television and as a voice over artist. As a stage manager, I have worked on professional and amateur productions in England, Scotland and Canada and enjoy applying my stage management skills to non-theatrical project management.

    Technical Spanish Native Translator

    France - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2

    As you can see below, I only translate into my mother tongue, Spanish. This is the only way that a translator can guarantee the highest level of quality while remaining competitive and cost efficient. For more than 4 years I have been working in the translation industry, mainly with direct clients but also with agencies as well. During this time, I have translated a lot of documentation from different domains, ranging from civil engineering, medicine, environment, cosmetics to cycling and many others, and this in very different formats and modalities (articles, catalogues, brochures, instructions manuals, patient information leaflets, websites, subtitles, etc.). My speciality is technical translation. However, thanks to a deep process of documentation, research and constant communication with my clients, I am able to translate, localize, proofread and subtitle any kind of document or content. So, if you need a new professional partner with my skillset and who always respect the leadtimes, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Translator and Content Editor

    Argentina - Last active: 17 days ago

    As a multilingual translator and content editor I understand how to communicate effectively with individuals who speak another language. For the last 20 years I have been communicating across cultures and I because of that can ensure that all parties involved in a project, regardless of geographic location and background, come together and stay together through successful project completion. I have been awarded a translation subsidy by NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) for the translation of two books of a major Norwegian writer. I enjoy working with people remotely as it is to work face-to-face, and cross-cultural communication is not a challenge for me.
