Bio
I am an Irish citizen, graduated from University College Dublin with studies in Electronic Engineering. Since graduating I have worked as an engineer or IT specialist through French (in Paris), Spanish (in Valencia, Spain), and Italian (in Perugia, Italy). I have also done extensive linguistic studies and have fluency diplomas in Spanish (DELE superior) and French (DELF, soon DALF). Since working for a translation firm in Italy that trained me in professional translation techniques, I have been working as a freelance translator for several years and have translated documents for some of the world's largest IT firms. It is work that I thoroughly enjoy and get great satisfaction out of doing.

Due to my background I translate IT Hardware, and software related documents and write them exactly as an engineer / IT specialist would, and not as a mere translation of the words. I can work from French, Spanish and Italian. I also work Saturdays, so Monday deadlines are not a problem. My translation rate is quite competitive in today's environment considering I do not treat them as a translation, but as an engineering/technology document that is to be read as clearly and naturally as possible, which can only be done by somebody with the training and experience in the field that I have.

I use the latest Trados, version 2009, for all translations and can also use Wordfast/OmegaT when requested to. All documents I produce are in British English (the professional writing standard in Ireland), and American English requests are also possible as I have lived in the states for some time and am very familiar with the differences and intricacies of the English language from teaching it. Clear communication with outsourcers is a priority and I always look to have a friendly, as well as professional, relationship with those I am in touch with regularly.

Feel free to write to me through ProZ for more information.

Best regards,
Brendan Lewis
