Provide 3 types of translations 

1. Fluent translation (least time required): The translation would be accessible and readable for target audience as to seem as an original in the target language. 

2. Commentary: The translation unpacks or unfolds the hidden complexity of the original, exploring at length implications that remain unstated or half-stated int the original 

3. Adaptation (most time required): The translation recasts the original so as to have the desired impact on an audience that is substantially different from that of the original:

E.g. adult text adapted for children, written text adapted for television 


Very passionate about working in the translation field. Looking forward to having more translation jobs. I am happy to show you my previous translation work.
