Creative translations from English to French of technical and general texts
Translation is a specialist skill requiring more than just knowledge of a foreign language! Use my services and you will benefit from my expertise, from language and writing skills to research and up-to-date subject knowledge. All of this, with a professional’s eye for detail.
Any document that is to showcase your organisation must be flawless. And this is where professionals show their worth: correcting grammar, syntax, punctuation and spelling mistakes; delivering polished results and avoiding errors which may end up causing you great expense!
Documents may have been poorly translated. As a professional I can take a fresh look at your work, ensuring the right terminology has been used and improving the style of the finished piece.
Transcreation or creative translations
Have you ever had to adapt a slogan, a marketing strategy or campaign? A creative translator will reformulate your message/content, so that it takes local requirements and markets into account, whilst keeping to its original intent, but not necessarily sticking too closely to the source text.
Of course, confidentiality is always a central tenet of my work.
How do I get a quote?
Generally speaking, I bill according to source word. However there are times when I bill according to actual time spent (daily or hourly rate), depending on several factors, to include: type or level of difficulty of document, medium, deadline, quality of writing or editing of images. I consider every document on an individual basis.
If you require translations into languages other than French, I would be more than happy to provide you with recommendations for qualified and experienced colleagues.
What format should documents be in?
I use the market leading tool for computer-assisted translation, Trados Studio 2014, which allows me to work with a wide variety of file types, to include PowerPoint, doc, html and pdf, to name but a few.
