Professional practices Octavio Armendariz endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a seasoned French-to-English legal and financial translator seeking to work closely with reliable translation agencies that value high quality work and understand that translation takes time. My aim is to offer agencies the best value for their money. For documents of a general nature, my output per day is 3,000 words (up to 5,000 using a CAT tool like Trados Studio) and 2,500 words for complex documents. I am open to working in and acquiring other CAT tools like MemoQ and/or WordFast depending on the volume of work offered.

Since I studied, lived and worked in Paris from 1989 to 1996 as a freelance translator, I acquired an in-depth knowledge of French civil, commercial, tax, employment and administrative law.

I also translate from Spanish into English. I grew up bilingual (English and Spanish) on the Arizona/Sonora border and studied at a Mexican high school, hence my fluency in Spanish. However, I went to high school and college in the U.S. and therefore consider English my native language because it is my dominant language and I have been speaking, reading and writing it since I was five years old. I also received formal training in Spanish-to-English translation at the ESIT (a Paris, France-based translation and interpretation school).

For Tectrad one of my major agency clients, I have worked in the following areas:
Annual and management reports for banks
Appellate pleadings for many types of cases including intellectual property cases.
Commercial leases
Layoff plans
Property contracts
Replies to the French tax authorities relating to transfer pricing
Several types of audits

Traducteur juridique et financier expérimenté de langue maternelle anglaise, je cherche à nouer des liens privilégiés avec des entreprises françaises dynamiques ayant des besoins de traduction. Mon objectif est de vous offrir le meilleur rapport qualité/prix. Je traduis du français vers l’anglais américain, mais aussi de l’espagnol vers l’anglais américain. Ma productivité pour des documents généraux est de 3000 mots par jour (voire 5000 mots en cas de travail avec un outil de traduction assistée par ordinateur tel que Trados Studio) et de 2500 mots par jour pour des documents techniques.
Comme j’ai étudié, habité et travaillé à Paris de 1989 à 1996 en tant que traducteur indépendant, j’ai acquis une connaissance approfondie du droit civil et commercial, de la fiscalité, du droit du travail et du droit administratif de ce beau pays qui est le vôtre.
Pour Tectrad, l’un de mes principaux clients, j’ai travaillé dans les domaines suivants :
- Contrats immobiliers
- Baux commerciaux
- Conclusions pour toute une panoplie d’affaires y compris des affaires ayant trait à la propriété intellectuelle
- Plans sociaux
- Réponses à l’administration fiscale ayant trait au prix de transfert
- Rapports annuels et rapports de gestion en particulier pour des SSII et des banques
- Plusieurs types d’audit
