Professional practices Freimanis endorses ProZ.com's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
My experience spans over two decades of linguistic and extra-linguistic exposure to the Latvian, English, Russian and German speaking world in areas such as business and management, sales and marketing, economic and management consultancy, telecommunications, forestry, aviation, building and construction, commercial law, consumer protection law, property management (condominiums), mechanical and electrical engineering, sheep farming and medicine.

As a translator, proof-reader and reviser, I do not claim utmost perfection, competence, and knowledge in any of these areas. Instead I offer real world translations backed by sound academic background (BA, MA, MBA with distinction – University of Latvia, University of Leeds, UK), informed by a range of hands-on experience from various fields and capacities (staff translator turned business manager for international companies turned freelance translator) and assisted by thorough research (where knowledge and experience lacks).

So with me every translation is an inch towards greater perfection, competence and knowledge to deliver what I believe the client needs: a linguistic product that effectively operates in the target language and environment. The mechanics of translation – crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s – is also in place. All work is performed and thoroughly checked by me, a native Latvian speaker. For translations into English I enlist the help of my partner, a native English speaker and former medical rep. We ensure uncompromised reliability and availability – all inquiries are answered promptly and, once committed, your project will be unfailingly delivered by the deadline specified.

Here are some details of my work by language pair in the last five years or so:

Technical regulations for the European Commission (under the 98/34 procedure), competition law (telecoms), consumer protection law, calls for tenders, annual reports, divorce cases, maintenance and custody claims, social benefit claims, property management disputes, birth, death, marriage divorce, medical and academic certificates, discharge summaries, medical trials, informed consents, back-translations of medical questionnaires.

Promotional texts for renown IT, internet, Hi Tech and automotive brands, EU citizenship and citizen rights, EU aviation regulations, industrial relations (European Works Council), human resources and trade unions, summaries of product characteristics (SPC’s), patient information leaflets (PIL’s), general medical texts, patient surveys, user manuals for automotive, medical, power generation and electrical equipment, brand checks.

Owner manuals and maintenance procedures for trucks, wood working, gardening, agricultural, forestry and road construction equipment, oriented strand board production plant and equipment, industrial relations (European Works Council).

Commercial contracts, general legal texts, annual reports, birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates.
