Professional practices Gilles Snoeck endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm a UN certified translator with 10 years experience. I passed the UN examination for translators last year and have, since then, been working as consultant for the UN HQ in Geneva as well as FAO/IFAD. Most of my freelance activity over the last ten years was for as well as companies such as ABBYY Lingvo, SmartCat, REV, and others.

As a result of my scientific background in bio-engineering and my daily experience, I'm the ideal person for the translation of any document connected to medicine, pharmacy, biology, environment, agriculture, earth science, and so on.

Moreover, my wide general culture means I'm able to handle jobs on all kinds of topics. Most of the tasks I get from the UN are related to government finance and development programmes, but I'm also a favourite translator for a vast diversity of clients, ranging from Flemish gardening brands to the Norwegian Ministry of Culture, motorbike firms, travel agencies, political organisations, Russian and Italian law firms, Italian courts, US high schools, video games (including Blizzard, Nintendo and Games Workshop), and Facebook (help with assessing and correcting the translation made by the integrated automatic translation tool).

I'm quite a gamer myself : I'm the lead translator for the French translation team of the Ninth Age project, a community-made wargame regrouping thousands of players from every continent. As a result I have translated hundreds of pages of almost-lawyer quality rulebooks as well as litterary fantasy works connected to the project, and helped managed the volunteer team as head of Glossary (8 languages Glossary containing gaming as well as literary terms). More recently, I have started organizing a Russian translation team made of community members that I help working together for the « Russification » of our game. This is 100% volunteering: I'm just a translation passionate – when I'm not translating for work, then I'm translating for fun.

Looking forward to discover what you have in store for me ! Any text is welcome ;)
