Professional practices Brian Scales endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
I am a Sydney-based certified translator (NAATI 3) with nearly seventeen years professional experience, the last nine years as one half of the French-English translation partnership, Lingua Franca Translation. My experience had ranged from employment as a member of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Organisation translation team to the translation of the broadest range of commercial, legal, technical and journalistic texts on behalf of direct clients and major international and Australian translation agencies. This work has entailed such various challenges as the translation of design and architecture-related articles for major Australian magazines and major technical translation projects demanding extreme terminiological precision.

Client and agency feedback has been consistently extermely positive with regard to the style and accuracy of my translations and the reliability of delivery.
