    French/English Senior Translator - Proofreading - Subtitles

    France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a French native who's been living in English speaking countries for many years. After completing a college degree, I started doing various translation jobs from English to French and vice versa. I notably worked on the adaptation of scripts for the TV show, The Simpsons, as well as some full length movies (The Simpsons, Yes Man). Benefiting from this experience, I do more than mere translations. I adapt, localize and transcreate texts which means I find equivalences to puns, wordplays, idioms, colloquialisms and cultural references, juggling with words until they sound good to the ear, flowing naturally with style, while keeping the essence, spirit, tone and emotions of the original text. I've worked on all kind of texts, from religious sermons to call-girls descriptions... and even the odd funeral speech. Kids book, work contracts, financial reports, SEO analysis, board games, movie subtitles, user manuals, video games, you name it. And this content was for all kind of media and formats: websites, mobiles apps, DVD, etc. It would be a mistake to think that there is a simple word-for-word equivalence between two given languages, and that translation is a straightforward process. A literal translation doesn't take into consideration many parameters, like the constraints imposed by context, syntax and figures of speech. It is necessary to understand the internal system of a language in order to produce the same effect in both languages, something artifical intelligence can't achieve (not yet at least...) And of course a good translation takes more than good language skills, it also requires research, proofreading and copywriting skills. Some clients seem to be worried that the translator would use an automatic software or Google translate. Well, while I might use a dictionary if I have a doubt about a word, rest assured that I never, ever use any of these tools. It seems pretty obvious but apparently some some people do... I also attach a lot of importance to the communication with my clients, which I think is paramount to the success of a project. I make sure to stay in contact throughout the project and don't hesitate to ask questions if I have a doubt about the context or anything else in order to make sure the translation will be 100% accurate. The speed and rate of the translation can vary significantly depending on the vocabulary register and the semantic and lexical fields. I'd be happy to give you a time and price quote if you can show me an exemple of your text. I also do: - transcription (converting audio speeches to text). - proofreading - Creation of subtitles and encoding them in your videos.

    Romania - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I have a great passion for writing and I have found many ways to exercise it throughout the years. One of my favorite methods is to work as a copywriter for various interesting projects that not only help me get out of my comfort zone but also offer a great way of learning new things. I have been doing it for the last few years and I can easily say that I have covered an immense array of subjects and writing styles. Being flexible as far as time and style go is very important to make sure that the client gets exactly what they want; being flexible and open to ideas is also essential.

    English/French translator, editor, copywriter

    France - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

    I'm a professional part-time English/French translator. I'm a native speaker of both English and French, and as such, I can translate both ways. Please have a look at my website at: I have experience translating, editing and proofreading, as well as copywriting, that is, adapting/rewording based loosely on an original draft, with a lot of effort put into making things sound as smooth as possible. I enjoy and take pride in delivering top-notch translations, and therefore, my prices are higher than the amateurs you'll see here on oDesk: I don't cut corners, I take time to edit and proof-read my translations carefully at least twice, and I pay a lot of attention to making it sound just right, so that no one can even tell that it's a translation. A good translation can't be prepared in a hurry, and that's why my price per word, for non-technical translations, is $0.12 / word.

    Experienced Content Writer and Translator

    Brazil - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 4

    I live in Curitiba, a creative and vanguardist city of south Brazil. I love to read and write ever since I was a child, and I developed a passion for writing down ideas and stories of my own from an early age. This motivated me to learn how to write correctly and to always chase perfection. I understand we are all citizens of the world, not only of our countries, and thus I started learning English and French at the end of my childhood and have never stopped. I am a very curious person, and I am always looking for better ways to express myself, with both verbal and writing skills, in Portuguese, English and French. I have always been passionate for studying human behaviour, and my constant reading of various subjects provide me with knowledge and insight to portray characters, scenes, thoughts, ideas and even whole narratives. I'm here to offer you my best technique, associated with a great respect for you and for the deadlines. Let's get to work!
