I am a native
French speaker who graduated from Amherst College
with a BA in Classics. I grew up in Saint Barths, and
went to school in the United States since the age of 16. I have ten
years' experience as a contract translator, and two years'
experience localizing Macintosh OS X content. Being bilingual,
I am equally at ease working from French to English as
I am working from English to French.
Projects are never subcontracted, and I provide total
accountability for any services rendered, This means
my clients never have to speak to a manager or project
lead -- this lack of an intermediary has proven to be
an effective method of handling small to medium jobs,
especially in situations where fluid, dynamic communication
is critical to a project's outcome.
Rates are competitive: my base rate is $.18 per word.
This rate is increased or decreased contingent on content,
complexity and size of any given project. I am also
available as a consultant at a base hourly rate of $80,
again contingent on the project. Any localization work
is quoted per project.
My reference assets
are extensive. In addition to written and digital lexical
resources, I make use of memory translation tools which
allow me to expedite projects while maintaining accuracy
and consistency throughout.
Final content can be provided in a wide variety of
digital formats, as well as hard copy.
