Carolyn W.

UK translator with excellent mother-tongue English

$40.00/hr

Leicester, United Kingdom

I am a freelance translator and copy-editor, with outstanding English ... morelanguage skills. I am particularly good at producing clear and concise summaries of long, complicated documents. I have a degree in French and Italian with Spanish. Specialist areas include classical music, education, culture and theology. I worked for over twenty years for a charity which published works on education. I did a lot of abstracting, copy-editing and proofreading, mainly in English. My translation skills were sometimes used for European research and projects. Between 1980 and 1990 I also did voluntary translations to and from Spanish for a local branch of a human-rights organisation. My experience of translating has therefore always been for people I know, and this means that my aim is always to produce something which the reader will understand, rather than sticking to a mechanical literal translation. Since July 2010 I have been a full-time freelance translator and copy-editor. less

    Absolutely outstanding--seemed to capture all the inflections and spirit of the original Italian text and translated it to English. Finished well ahead of schedule, excellent communicator and professional. Took a personal interest in the book she translated and it showed. It just couldn't be happier--thank you!
