I have been working in the
translations field for now over 19 years full time, as a translator and as a
translations system manager, so I have a very good knowledge of the whole cycle
of production of all type of items - Web Site, Subtitles, Voice Over files,
InDesign Files, Office Files, etc...

I dealt with all types of
files on both functions - thus, most likely I will be able to adapt to your
need and provide exactly the translation you need in the format you need.
During my 9 years as full time translator in an in-house translation
department, I translated over 7 million words, proofread over 10 million words
and edited many other Freelance translations. I translated in many fields -
Church literature, company catalogs, promotional items such as magazines,
posters, fliers, Web sites, voice over scripts, subtitles, finance manual,
cleaning manual, IT manual, etc. So, I can translate almost any general

I have also a very solid
technical background, with a master degree in Mechanical Engineering, and with
10 years working as programmer and system administrator. Thus I have a very
good duplication of English and abstract concepts and I am capable of
translating them properly to relay the intended message to the reader.

Since I started my
Freelance activity, over 3 years ago, I got approved as translator by the
following agencies: 
Abby, ADT, Between Worlds, ECI, Edimart, Foreign
Translations, Fluent Translations, Genese, Global Voice, Idea Translations,
Jonckers, Language Scientific, Linearis, LingPerfect, LionBridge Living Words,
LocalM, MaxSun, Morning Star, Multilinguo Plus, Omniage, One Global, OSW,
Pangeanic, PopTranslation, Probst, Quest, Raffles, RR-Translations, Straker,
Techlingua, Traducta, Translate Media, Translia, Translocal, ULGroup, Word
, etc., and since then, here are some of the main items and brands I

I am currently using SDL
Trados 2019 and Catalyst and I am familiar with MemoQ and XRTF. I can translate up to 4000
words per day and I am able to deal with rush traffic, late traffic or weekend

I can translate all kind of
files and can adapt the Trados filter or do any special preparation in case you
have very complexe files (mixed tagged, unknown file type, etc.).

I always build up a very
complete terminology database on all projects I am working on. I enjoy
translating and working in that field and I am always looking to improve
myself, becoming a better translator, but also using all the tools existing to
provide you the best service. I can also ensure in case of Office file that the
formatting is proper - so you will get a perfect, print-ready file.

And I am looking forward to
working with you.

Best regards,
Patrice Philippi
