Professional practices Nina Michael endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I was born in Texas but grew up in Mexico, Japan, The Philippines and the USA and lived the longest part of my life in New York City where I studied acting, film, theatre, English (for writing), business and economics. I lived in Italy from 2008-2011, where I worked as an English teacher and a freelance translator; I also occasionally wrote for the local English newspapers in Florence. Upon returning to New York City, I continued to work as a freelance translator. From 2012-2013, I also worked as a project manager for a technology firm and a journalist for Mobile Marketing Magazine. A career change choice led me to Columbia University, where I decided to pursue a degree in Biochemistry, and finished in 2016 with honors.
I moved to Seattle, Washington in the United States in June, 2017, and completed a Master's degree in Chemistry. I recently moved back to New York, where I am continuing my education as a PhD candidate in the department of Chemistry, specifically in the field of chemical biology. My interests/specializations are travel, literature, languages, science, medicine, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, biology, health, journalism, cultural studies, marketing, general business, insurance, tourism, cuisine and e-commerce.
Every term in a translation is important and I put lots of research and term checking into every job I do to produce the best finished product possible. All finished translations are written in a smooth and natural English that clearly expresses the original meaning without sounding awkward or forced. I am more than happy to provide a sample of my work for free to any client who requests it.
My clients are very important to me and I always seek to maintain a healthy and professional relationship with them; I am flexible to accommodate financial needs and/or deadlines as best as I can and am always available to answer any questions and/or concerns.
