Spanish (monolingual) English to Spanish
Claudia Alvis ProZ.com Professional Trainer Technical Trans./Interp. L10n expert.
I'm a full-time English to Spanish translator and interpreter with 12 years of experience and a background in Literature, Journalism and Web Design. I was raised in Lima, Peru and my native language is Spanish. My specialization is Software and Game Localization. I can handle several formats like HTML, XML, PHP, ASP, FLASH, etc. I can also localize software including web-based and Windows Mobile, iPhone and Android applications!
Many projects consist in different kinds of files like Web, text, graphics, help files, software, etc. So I use several specialized tools to maintain the consistency of the terminology throughout the whole project, and also to assure the linguistic and technical quality of the final product. Additionally, your product will be localized for the specific market. That is, your product will be translated and adapted keeping in mind the cultural and linguistic characteristics of that public.
I am also an English and Spanish Interpreter in Peru, specialist in liaison and consecutive interpreting.
Localization of Web Sites (HTML, HTML/PHP, XML, ASP, FLASH) and Software (software, hardware, documentation and help files). I've also localized iPhone apps and commercial Windows Mobile applications.
High quality translation and editing services for: Documents, Certificates (Birth, Marriage, etc.), Academic transcripts, Diplomas, Business and Private Correspondence, Business Literature, Marketing, Brochures, Manuals, Manuscripts, Press Releases, Printed and Online Documentation, Presentations and more.
Editing and Proofreading
I can also proofread and edit previously translated documents and files. Keep in mind that I only work with professional translators, so I don't proofread machine-translation and I don't proofread translations done by non-professionals (I can tell the difference, trust me).
If a document needs some minor DTP editing, I can do it for free. If the document needs heavy DTP editing, it will be charged accordingly per hour.
Audio and Video Transcription. Time-coding/stamping upon request.
