Professional practices Roni Osbern endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I offer translations, subtitling and website localization specializing in
business and marketing, and the social sciences, including literature, history, sociology and geopolitics. 

I regularly work with corporations and vendors from Canada, France, the UK and the US. Firms and vendors from other countries would be welcomed.

I'm proud to say that I earned my MA, with merit, in French to English Translations, University of
Portsmouth, UK, and my French to English Translation Certification  from New York University (NYU). In
addition, I studied for two years at the renowned l'Institut de Touraine, in Tours, France. Last, have an ILR-3 (Superior) rating in French reading, retested in August 2019.

My 30 years working for
Fortune 500 companies has provided me with a vast array of experience creating
and editing business-to-business (B2B) marketing collateral, websites and RFPs.  All sales and marketing projects are welcome.

As for social science projects, these are my true passion. I welcome journal articles, fiction and non-fiction manuscripts, as well as all academia projects.
