Professional practices Kristen Stone endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I am a French to English freelance translator specializing in literature, politics, journalism, marketing, travel, tourism, biology and medicine. I received my B.A. from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR in 2010 with a double major in French studies and international affairs. I received my Masters in literary translation from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May of 2015. I am a Proz Certified Pro, member of ATA and ALTA and I volunteer for Translators Without Borders.

While I mainly specialize in literary translation, I also have a strong background in science and politics. Before redirecting my career path to pursue foreign language and translation, I hoped to attend medical school following my undergraduate education. I worked in several immediate care clinics as well as a veterinary hospital while completing prerequisite courses for medical school at my university (anatomy, biology, chemistry, etc.) and am therefore highly proficient in scientific concepts and terminology. When I decided to change my career path, I focused the final three years of my undergraduate education on international relations and foreign language. During this time I extensively studied theoretical political concepts as well as current affairs and international relations.

I have nearly a decade of experience working as a freelance translator (started in 2013). I have worked with a wide variety of direct clients and agencies, always meet the predetermined deadlines, and have completed numerous different projects, including medical studies for academic journals, a series of books published on autism, numerous projects for various NGOs and International Organizations, fictional short stories, marketing for various products, and much more. I am highly professional and pride myself on producing quality translations on time at a competitive price.  

In addition to having a strong background in terms of my education and professional experience, I lived in France and Morocco for three and a half years and spent time in numerous regions, giving me a strong grasp of varying dialects and cultural differences throughout these countries. I have also spent the last decade traveling the world, gaining what I consider to be an informal education on cultural diversity.
