About me
Hello!

My name is Robert Long, and I am a polyglot and freelance translator providing translation services from Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, and Catalan into English (my native language). The bulk of my experience and expertise involves business, legal, and marketing translations, though I also have a great deal of experience with medical texts as well.

I have spent the over a decade honing my linguistic skills through a combination of travel, university training, and autodidactic learning, and I’m confident that my abilities and experience will ensure an excellent level of service and quality.

In addition to my direct experience as a translator, I've also had the opportunity to work as a project manager for a successful translation agency located in Houston, Texas. In this position I was able to refine my editing and proofreading skills, both of which are essential components of the translation process.

Despite my relatively high number of language pairs, I am able to work in all of them with equal efficiency and skill. To ensure accuracy and quality I only translate into English, without exception. I have worked for numerous agencies and companies around the world, whereby I have also been able to develop cultural and linguistic understandings and sensitivities.

As far as CAT tools are concerned, I work with Trados, Déjà Vu, MemSource, and Star Transit NXT, and I would be happy to complete test translations for any or all of my language pairs

If you would like additional information or to request a quote, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Robert Long




"In a world of machine translations and less than qualified translators, it can be hard to find quality and reliability. Fortunately, Robert Long offers both in not one, but five crucial languages. His attention to detail and commitment to quality are evident no matter the size or complexity of the translation. Not only is he fast, but his translations are solid. For quality and convenience on an affordable budget, Robert long is the way to go!"
