Professional practices John Alphonse endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I specialize in offering marketing-optimized advertising copywriting, tech/IT writing and software localization – as well as editing & proofreading of language translations into U.S. English.

My areas of expertise include advertising & marketing, telecommunications, technology & technical writing/editing, website localization, travel & tourism and retail.

I work extensively providing Spanish > English and French > English translation and I also work collaboratively with native Spanish and French translators to deliver EN>ES and EN>FR projects.

My clients have included Samsung, Microsoft, Nokia, Sony Mobile, Vodafone, Hughes Global Services, Bally, Konami, G5 Entertainment, Nike, Dune UK, Hobbs UK, Emerson Industrial Automation and many others.

Professionals put their trust in me to deliver their message in a way that reflects their own level of expertise. I am quite frequently contacted by translation agencies to assist with the promotional writing and linguistic accuracy of their own websites, something that I am particularly pleased to report as I feel that it speaks highly of the level of quality that I've become known for providing.

I look forward to being of service on your next project!
