SERVICES OFFERED ------------------------------------------------------- [En français ici]

Translation/proofreading from English and German into French
● Synoptic translation (=summarization)
● NB: I do not offer machine translation post-editing services

FEATURES -----------------------------------

Full-time professional translator
University graduate (Master's degree 1Y - "Translation & multilingual, multimedia communication")
● Output: +/-2,000 words/day
Idiomatic/natural style with lexical variation in a spotless French
● Large databank of resource material (in S&T languages)

Plus (subjectively):
● A sharp linguistic sensitivity, resulting from studying linguistics, stylistics and rhetoric (also translatology) and a genuine passion for languages
● A good understanding of the "way of thinking" (the "Weltanschauung" (world view) as explained by Humboldt) behind the languages and cultures I am working in and which is needed to adapt logic/reasoning from one language to another
● A relatively rich vocabulary, resulting from hours of reading every week in my spare time
● The extra qualities which make the difference between okay and great: flair, resourcefulness, attention to detail, target-audience awareness and never-satisfied mindset. Nothing is left to chance...

SPECIALTY FIELDS -----------------------------------

Although as any qualified translator I am able to competently translate various types of generic and semi-specialized contents, acquiring hands-on knowledge when needed, I also have expertise in specialty fields, which I gained either through education, work experience, or out of personal interest.

Economics and finance: banking, investment, corporate finance, markets (incl. forex), trading + public finance + accounting + insurance
Computer science (hardware and software): architecture, storage, networks, cloud computing, virtualization + programming, among other subtopics
Marketing: everything requiring creative writing and free-flowing style for a persuasive rendering ● Also interested in sports (mainly team sports, incl. basketball), casino/gambling (esp. sports betting), tourism/travel, political affairs, self-help, education, nutrition, vulgarized sciences (esp. psychology and neuroscience), criminology...

● Volunteer translator/subtitler for the Khan Academy (finance sections, 25+ videos)
● Favorite quote pertaining to translation: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, and the words to say it flow with ease (Nicolas Boileau)
