Bio

As a translation and localization professional, I delight in delivering accurate versions of video games, technical, and financial content. My clients benefit from careful attention to clear communication, awareness of context and original intent, and the assurance of reliable and punctual delivery of translations. 

✓ As a Video Game translator, I am adept at addressing not only the issues of localization and cultural references but the need to translate for a multimodal environment where players interact with the game system via various communication channels. I find the accurate translation and localization of video games gratifying.

✓ As a technical and financial translator I have a passion for search and research, a keen eye for small, yet often significant details, and I enjoy the challenge and the patience required to deliver accurate localized translations. 

As a translation professional my success relies on three pillars: 
✓ Technical Accuracy: Upfront consideration of the technical difficulty of each translation task. One of my first actions upon receipt of the project is the creation of a glossary to raise the necessary queries early on and improve accuracy.
✓ Contextual accuracy: Similar to an actor on a stage, as a translator I understand how to interact with a text. Indeed, I imagine the scenes and how characters might relay information on phrase certain things. This ability contributes to my ability to get the tone right, even in situations that lack source references, videos or audios.
✓ Punctuality: For every project, I prepare for the possibility of a technical issue (whether a software bug, power outage… etc.), I am technically savvy and prepared to handle a variety of problems that allow me to ensure on-time delivery. In addition to producing high-quality work, of course, delivering on time is crucial.
