Professional practices John Coakley endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Nor-Word Text Services, founded in 1973, specializes in technical and scientific translating and editing. Dr. John P. Coakley, proprietor and staff translator/editor of Nor-Word, has translated hundreds of texts into English from French, Spanish, and Scandinavian languages (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish) on a variety of technical and other topics. In addition to translation, our team of university-trained professionals in science and engineering, native-speakers of many modern languages, can provide guaranteed editing / rewrite, and proofreading services. Before establishing Nor-Word, Dr. Coakley was a geologist and Professional Engineer, working for the Canadian government and specializing in environmental research and water management issues. He is therefore well-versed in technical terminology and writing styles. He was a visiting scientist at Université Laval in Quebéc and the University of Bordeaux. He is certified by the Assoc. of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario (ATIO) for Norwegian:English translation, and by the SFÖ (Swedish Professional Translators Association), and AILIA. He has served as manuscript reviewer and Assoc. Editor for scientific journals and conferences. Nor-Word takes pride in its commitment to excellence through meticulous terminological research, proof-reading, and editing, with the assistance of native French speakers.
