from Chinese, German & French into English
I translate from German, Chinese and French into English. Translation is not simply substituting the words of one language with those of another.
A good translation not only accurately and faithfully reproduces all the information and meaning of the source text, but also captures the mood, style and cultural implications of the original. A good translation will read smoothly and as if it had originally been written in the target language.
I work with all text types, including business correspondence, reports and certificates, and all text formats such as Word, Excel, OpenOffice, JPEG and PDF’s. I use CAT tools (memoQ and Trados) whenever they may be helpful to produce a better translation. I specialise in international relations, business & trade, engineering & technology and culture & education.
