Professional practices Peter Selman endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Highly motivated and
extremely conscientious, I am the go-to man for my valued translation and
proofreading clients. I have studied languages with a passion since topping my
French class as a 11-year-old in 1993, perfecting my talents at the prestigious
University of Warwick, England, the Pontificia Universidad
Católica, Chile and the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP), Spain. After mastering Spanish, stints in Brazil and
Catalonia led to fluency in Portuguese and Catalan. My language-learning thirst
and curiosity resulted in vastly improving my A-level French and picking up

My focus as a
translator is on producing idiomatically correct and verified texts that read
as if they were originally written in English, seeking to use a perfectionist’s
attention to detail, style, grammar, and vocabulary. I currently
translate/proofread approximately 75,000 words a month on average, although I
have the availability to translate up to 100,000 words per month. My areas of
expertise are legal, financial, business and tourism.

My target is always to
produce the highest quality translation for my client, and I am happy to
provide sample translations free of charge for potential clients.

I have worked on projects for the European Commission, the FAO, the UN,
Facebook, Google, Credit Suisse, the Governments of Angola and Catalonia, and
many others.
