My user name, 'Flumen Verborum', is Latin for 'river of words'. I have over 10 years of experience translating Latin into English and vice versa both as a student and professionally. I am currently an ESL tutor as well as a translator. Past professional experience includes teaching English in Japanese high schools and elementary schools for two years and working as a Japanese-English translator and research assistant on an archaeological dig in Minami Arima, Japan from 2003-2004. More recently I worked as a Language Expert on the Rosetta Stone Latin version 3 software.
Though I have translated professionally from Japanese to English, my forte as a translator is Latin-English, English-Latin, and Italian-English. Areas of focus include slogans, mottoes, music, history, art, art history, archaeology, Japanese Christian history, catalogs, travel guides, travel websites and children's literature. My Italian-English translation experience so far includes stainless steel and fashion catalogs, legal translation and various other work. My English-to-Latin experience is centered around liturgical translations and modern Latin. I was most recently hired as a Latin language expert for the Rosetta Stone Latin software, version 3.
Precision, accuracy, and ease of understanding are my principal focus. I seek to produce speedy translations of exceptional quality and smoothness, while remaining as faithful as possible to the nuances of the source language. I pride myself on the research I do to ensure that each translation is accurate and faithful to the intentions of the author.
