I offer the following services: translation (French & German into English), subtitling & closed captioning, transcription & DTP.
I am a UK-born English native speaker.
I graduated with a linguistics & translation degree in 2000, and have been translating professionally for over 15 years.
For the last 3 years I have been working for two major translation agencies- I must have done well over a thousand translation, subtitling or layout jobs.
I have also had several French public procurement contracts.
I am tasked with translating a broad variety of subject areas, including highly technical and legal documents.
I have numerous contacts working in different professions I can consult when needed.
I have advanced computer skills.
I have lived in France for over 15 years and understand the subtleties and intricacies of the French Language. I have spent two years in Germany.
I mainly subtitle in English and French, but if the text is provided, I can subtitle in any of my working languages.
The agencies I have done work for and my own clients have never been disappointed with my work.
I make it a matter of personal policy to fully understand the client's wants and needs beforehand.
I have a great deal of pride in my work, and do my absolute utmost to ensure my translations are accurate, culturally sensitive and properly written.
