Welcome to my profile.

I have been working with translations for around 10 years now, in the
academic environment. I have worked for universities, publishing houses,
research centers, professors and researchers (such as myself). All of this through "analogic means", since I am new to ProZ. My
previous translations comprise books, scientific articles, and many
research abstracts. I can provide links to my published past
translations upon request.

My fields of expertise/proximity comprise humanities, applied social sciences, communication, marketing, folklore, literature, video games, movies.

In the translation process I prefer to keep the target text as faithful to the source as possible. The only exception are idiomatic expressions, since in general they are related to a less formal language. In this case I will choose the solution which better expresses the message. If there are multiple possibilities in the target language, I will select the closest one to the source as well.

However, if the source text is not formal, I may adopt a different pattern focusing on the intended meaning.

When dealing with neologisms and similar, I would rather come up with a version in the target language than keep the term in the source language. Except for what might be set within a glossary or already absorbed by the field in the target language.

Feel free to tell me if you have a preference among these options. Additional information about the source text may also help in this matter.

I may work on weekends and if necessary I can adjust my working hours to a project.
