Professional practices Richard Asher endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a professional freelance translator and writer, widely published in a multitude of English publications and websites. Add to this my flair for languages and translation, and you have someone who can translate several languages into clean and thoroughly readable English.

However, I am moving towards a specialization in translating Dutch to English. I am also a specialist in French birth and marriage certificates. And, following my recent contract work for Bristol-Myers Squibb's multi-language European publications team, I have experience of medical and pharmaceutical texts in all my language pairs.

I am fairly new to but I do have an excellent rating from my previous work on Elance. This can be viewed here.

You may ask why I have not pursued Elance further. The answer is that since I began freelancing in 2009 I have focused on establishing a name for myself in the print world, as well as building up good personal relationships with editors. That done, I have decided to venture back into this kind of online work in the hopes of developing a great reputation for my translation skills.

I decided to take the route rather than returning to Elance because is dedicated to translation. It also charges good money for membership, which I hope limits the competition to only proper professionals such as myself!
