My name is Sarah Buckley and I have recently achieved a degree in English Literature and German from the University of Chester. I am currently seeking projects translating and proofing German into English to help fund a Postgraduate degree in Translation.
Whilst at university I studied translation modules which focused on translating a variety of texts such as literature, advertisements, newspaper articles, interviews, travel brochures, instruction manuals and political texts as well as transcribing and subtitling videos and creating summaries of German articles/videos into English. I am familiar with translation techniques and always research my target audience before I even begin translating. Some of my work received a first class mark and samples can be provided on request.
My list of interest and specialities include, but are not limited to: Literature, Fashion, Marketing, Social Networking/Blogging, Travel, Advertising, Current Affairs, Beauty/Cosmetics. Please contact me for any subject area as you can rest assured that I always thoroughly research before starting a project and will not take on any work that I feel I am unable to deliver to an exceptional standard.
*Please note that as I currently have no formal qualifications I offer my services at a highly discounted rate and will consider unpaid work in exchange for being able to add your company to my CV, potentially as a reference. Please do not hesitate to contact me to negotiate a price or ask any other questions.
Depending on the subject matter, I am currently able to translate up to 2,500 - 3,000 words per day.
