    EXPERT Bilingual ENGLISH/FRENCH/U.K. ENG. Translator/Proofreader

    France - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 21 - Portfolio: 8

    As a French native state-employed English Teacher for quite a number of years, I can provide accurate translations from English into standard French from FRANCE, and the other way round. I worked for "Gengo.com" for a year only, but unlike them, so far, I can translate into genuine UK English all types of documents at the rate of $0.06/word, that can be as low as $0.04 for high volumes starting from 3,000 words ( and $0.08/word for technical and legal translation jobs), and my test- results speak for themselves. Given my background, I can deliver truly academic, as well as audience-oriented translations. However, I now refuse to translate content for e-commerce sites selling illegal products in FRANCE, as the shoppers would have problems with the French customs, or even worse, with the police. I also refuse to proofread what appears to be plain machine-translation or clearly post-edited machine translation jobs, from either other contractors (you should just ask for a refund!) or customers. Fair enough, isn't it? Now, please have a look at my portfolio, and you will see what I mean! Finally, I now have experience in simultaneous 3-way translation over the phone (see my profile).

    English - Mandarin Chinese Translator

    Taiwan - Last active: 14 hours ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    I'm a native Mandarin Chinese speaker and fluent English speaker. I've helped numerous business owners and individuals enter the Chinese marketplace. In order to achieve a successful project, I listen to what client needs and make sure which Chinese spoken areas client targets, so I know which writing systems or dialects I should translate to. Due to the fact that the majority of the Mandarin speaking population uses Simplified Chinese, I'm generally asked to translate to this writing system. However, I'm also seeking opportunities to promote Traditional Chinese. Most of the projects I have on Upwork (formerly oDesk) are translating from English into Simplified Chinese. Since I'm not native English speaker, I can't claim to present error-free results. Unless clients don't mind and are willing to give me this offer, I usually don't accept Chinese to English translation job. I know how important trust, understanding and communication are. Clients' feedback proves how seriously I took each project no matter its complexity. I endeavor to build a great professional reputation. Finally, I'm open to any suggestions or critics. Thank you!

    English into Italian translator

    Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 21

    Italian native translator based in Venice. Active passion for languages and foreign cultures since the age of four, when my grandmother used to point at things naming them in English and talk about her travels, acknowledged at the age of twenty, when I was selected among the top twelve English speaking students in Italy to participate in the European Classes project, organized by the European Union and held in Alden Biesen (Belgium), as member of the Italian delegation. Familiarity with technical Marketing, Commerce & Business, Finance and Aviation terms derived from Economics and Civil Aviation studies are the basis for specialization in translations related to these fields. Active interest in forex trading since April 2011 and in social dynamics psychology since 2008 consolidate my knowledge. Owning and managing a small aviation related business and the website Skycolors.com since 2003 led to refinement of business writing skills and acquisition of SEO knowledge. Article writing for the local newspaper "Il Candelaio" in 2001 set the interest for writing rules. Fields of specialization: * Marketing (sales letters, public relations materials, fact sheets, press releases, newsletters and brochures, promotional materials, marketing copy, branding plans, web content) * Commerce and business (quality assurance documents, employee handbooks, policies, training documents, communication plans, project plans, requests for proposals, operational documents, management and strategic business plans, administration guides, user guides, computer software, Android and iOS apps) * Finance (fx / forex, binary options and other online trading related articles, user manuals, financial news) * Civil aviation (airport infrastructure documents, air navigation guides, aircraft specifications, airline brochures) Software used: * SDLX, POEdit * Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, OpenOffice Writer and Calc * Corel Paint Shop Pro Remarkable attention to detail, creativity, precision and concentration allow me to provide competitive services ensuring guaranteed satisfaction, accuracy, reliability and professionalism. Depending on my workload, all documents are processed as quickly as possible, ensuring a quick turnaround time for the finished translation. Thank you for your interest in my services, I look forward to doing business with you.

    English and French Translator, Editor and Proofreader

    United Kingdom - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 5

    I have worked as an editor and proofreader for several companies before, from academic essays (as an example, a study of the work of a French philosopher), fictions and biographic novels (a travelogue from Europe to Asia), a funding application for a project between Bolivia and Belgium (I was not in charge of the Spanish part of the project, but the editing of the French and the translation of the English applications), webpages and PowerPoint presentations for several companies. For several of these jobs and positions, I have acted as an editor but also a translator when necessary. As a French and English native (thanks to my international education), I am perfectly bilingual in both languages. On top of that I have two Masters' degrees, one from the University of Paris (Sorbonne) and one from the University of Cambridge (UK). My perfect knowledge of these two languages allows me to produce very accurate translations, as I understand all the nuances in French as well as in English.
