Bio
Let me please introduce myself...

WHO AM I

My name is Lisa, I’m a freelance translator and proofreader, under the business name S. Lisa Translations. I translate from German, English and Latin (sic!) to French, my mother tongue. I also offer proofreading of French monolingual texts, translation revision and machine translation post-edition (MTPE).

WHERE I COME FROM

I have a long education background in Classical Philology, that is Latin and Old Greek Studies, associated to a strong experience of the German language,
which I gained through language and literature courses at university, an
Erasmus year and four years studying Latin and French in Germany. English has always been an important work language
for me, through the use of academic texts in my research work during my
studies and the contact with non-German-speaking academic fellows.

Translation
has always been an important part of my academic daily life, so when I
began to question my will and my abilities to become a teacher, I
thought...why not choose translation? And it worked!

WHAT I’M WORKING ABOUT

My areas of experience:

  • marketing/communication texts:
    white papers, press releases, customer success
    stories, translation and proofreading of customer surveys
  • legal texts (non-sworn): contracts
  • human sciences: proofreading of a presentation poster in Byzantine Studies and a bachelor thesis about sociolinguistics
  • webtoons (online comics)

As a volunteer, I have translated and reviewed a lot of texts for Translators without Borders, mostly information and training material for humanitarian workers in the health care field, and content related to quality assurance.
I'm also a contributor of Global Voices Online (press articles translation).

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY WORK:

  • being "part of the flow" of knowledge, information that goes through the world and to facilitate it
  • the chance to put my language skills at the service of others
  • learning, learning and learning ;
    not only because a translator can learn a lot of things about various
    topics through the projects he/she works on, but also because it’s part of a translator’s career to continuously learn about current or future specialization areas.

WHAT I OFFER:

  • language skills
  • precision
  • punctuality
  • good communication
  • respect of my clients’ requirements and needs
  • confidentiality
  • concern for proper knowledge and documentation about the projects I work and will be working on!
