Professional practices PaulPatruno endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
As an experienced manager, I have been involved in small and large projects and experienced the demands and rigors of working in collaboration teams, and believe such experience would be an invaluable tool in helping for your position.

My educational background and work experience demonstrate a strong sense of efficiency, reliability, and requiring little guidance in reaching desired results.

I only do perfect translation work / Je ne fais que des traductions de qualité

Having worked in the technology industry many years, I have done bilingual work for more than 25 years, writing in English and French, translating from English to French and French to English, reports, memos, articles, patent claims and abstracts and publications. I am well versed in computers, new media, and information technologies, which can all be used as effective tools.

In my spare time, I also ran a small business operation selling language learning software on the internet.
I currently focus on using my skills as linguist and my engineering background as a freelance translator specialized in technical translations, patents and applications manuals and engineering documents and I earned more and more repeated orders because of my commitment to excellence and consistency in my work.

I would welcome the opportunity to further discuss my qualifications and your hiring criteria. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I am fluent in French as a native speaker and educated in France.


Paul Patruno

PS: I mastered and use Trados Studio 2019 and I can also deliver projects files in memoQ, WordFast and other formats. I also use a set of dedicated QA tools I own to proof all my translations and ensure consistency, French grammar and spelling in the most complete and efficient way.
