I have been a freelance translator between German into English and Italian to English languages for over 5 years. I have translated countless legal, financial, commercial, marketing and technical texts into English to tight deadlines. I research terms, check my work and welcome feed-back and requests for corrections from clients, and of course, positive comments. 

I use Word document, SDL Trados 2015, memoQ, Memsource, MateCat, Fluency, Subtitle Edit.

 I now do subtitling for fashion, current affairs, etc.

I am new to subtitling and I have had some mixed feed-back, and I am hoping to improve. I try to reflect the current spoken language as much as possible. And avoid things people do not say anymore.
