Professional practices Danette St. Onge endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm a freelance translator and editor with many years of experience, specializing in medical, healthcare, life sciences, food and cuisine, tourism/travel, and marketing. I also have more than 10 years of experience in linguistic QA.

I can provide fast turnaround while maintaining strong attention to detail and precision. I am sensitive to maintaining the original sense of a text without rendering it awkward or nonsensical with overly literal translations. Having lived and worked in Italy for five years for an Italian employer, and now having lived and worked in France for six years, I am very familiar with cultural nuances and expressions in both languages that are essential to an accurate translation. I have worked with both online and print clients, as well as software and website localization.

I have excellent writing, editing, copyediting, and proofreading skills as well as a tested typing speed of up to 110 wpm with 99% accuracy. My studies in biology and fine arts and culinary studies lend me a specialized edge in these particular topics. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Tufts University (cum laude) and a B.F.A. in Fine Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, with concentrations in cinematography and painting. I have also worked full-time as an editor for a noted U.S. food and cooking magazine.

I have had ongoing contracts with the U.S. government (Social Security Administration) as a French, Italian, and Spanish to English medical translator in addition to numerous independent clients.

I was an in-house Linguistic Quality Assurance Manager for ISO-certified medical translation company Crimson Life Sciences (now a part of TransPerfect Translations) for several years and continue to perform regular translations, LQA reviews and edits for them on a freelance basis. 

Most recently, my work includes translations and copy editing for "Paris vous aime" magazine, offered in Paris airports, and medical translations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
