Translation and editing proofreading of several large projects

Have worked on two main big projects for this client, one proofreading of more than 100,000 words (in a few weeks) and translation of related texts for a hotel booking site and the other project, a beauty product, translating marketing texts, subtitles and other. I kept the deadlines and was quite accurate in my proofreading, able to point out mistakes and problems with the text. As always, it has been a pleasure to work with this employer and I am a regular translator with them now, looking forward to more fantastic assignments from them.

Website Translation - Eaglewing Publishing (Falconry Books)

Translation for writer and falconer William C. Oakes, of his website "Eaglewing Publishing" from English into Spanish. The site was very clearly presented and I had read and admired Oakes work for a few years. It was indeed an honour to be able to take part in such a project, related to one of my hobbies and professions; falconry. The client was extremely cooperative at all times and worked hard along side me to put my translations up, while developing a very positive work relationship. It was a good team-work experience and a very pleasant one...I'm sad its already over. The client is an outstanding professional in all areas and the translation of the site will no doubt benefit the Spanish speaking falconry community. Personally, a very rewarding task. Look forward to working with this client again in the future.

William C. Oakes: Bea did a most professional, timely, and talented translation. She made the process very easy. She understood my business needs. I am very glad that I translated my website into Spanish. I am even more glad that Bea was my translator.

Translation of BOOK (English to Spanish)

This project was a translation of the book by Imdad Naeem, Use My Unique Method to Win on the Lottery/Lotto and the Pools ,with ISBN 1-4120-5503-2 , published initially in 2004 and to be printed and published in Spanish soon. It was a wonderful project to work on and I already had some base knowledge (numerology) on this subject so I was delighted to be able to read some of the theories contained in the book. All in all a very interesting and well thought out book. The author was very helpful and provided all answers to my questions. I am very satisfied with the finished translation of this book and wish the author all the best. It is a book that will prove to be a great success. It was also a pleasure to work with this author and would recommend him to anyone.

Games / Video Games / Gaming / Casino
Imdad Naeem: From the moment I engaged Miss Candil Garcia, she set about her task with such dedication and enthusiasm, contacting me virtually all the time to give progress report, finishing 10 days before the agreed deadline. Superb finished job too.
