Hello! My name is Vanessa Walsh and I'm currently studying my MA in "Translation Sciences" at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. I grew up in Ontario, Canada, and English is my mother language.
I attended Queen's University in Canada and graduated with an Honours Arts Bachelor in Foreign Languages and International Studies (French/German). I have many years of immersion in my source languages, years of uninterrupted translation experience, and an excellent command of English, my target language.
I specialize primarily in literary, academic, website, and business/marketing translation, having translated several documents including novels, academic papers, scripts, business plans, and more, from FRA-ENG and DEU-ENG. I also work with technical translations and/or post-editing. If you need a translator who has experience in writing and editing and can ensure a readable, coherent, and professional translation, you've found her here.
I have a M.A. degree in Russian language, literature and linguistics from the University of Arizona, and my translations are read by undergraduate university students across the United States in the pages of _The Russia Reader_ (Duke University Press, 2010). I have also completed three years of German-language study at the University of Arizona. I worked extensively for over four years on the Russian 2014 Winter Olympics Project by translating a variety of documents, ranging from press releases and brochures to technical construction diagrams of the Olympic facilities. If you watched any of the English-language broadcasts of the Opening Ceremony on February 7, 2014, then you would have heard some of my translations of the speeches of officials as read by the TV commentators.
I have also contributed translations of marketing materials that advance the business goals of major companies active in both Russia and Germany. For example, last fall I translated the annual report of a major Russia-based steel producer targeted at investors. I have also recently translated the clothing catalog of a German manufacturer of music merchandise.

Chris Blowers Software and Translation,
My name is Braj. I am working as a freelance translator for the last seven years.
Over the years, I have translated a variety of texts in all the major fields, such as medical, technical and legal texts, literary texts, tourist information, web pages, and advertising leaflets. However, my preferred subjects are legal translations, tourism & leisure industry and sales & marketing.
My translations are 100% handmade, which means that I never use machine-translation programs, only the best translators tools existing on the market, such as MemoQ and SDL Trados, for the simple reason of saving time in order to deliver the commissioned work in the record time.
Before starting any translation, I thoroughly study the topics related to the text subject, and always consult specialised dictionaries and manuals.

I have translated a range of text types ranging from media and literature to scholarly and journal articles. I have completed some freelance work since graduating last year, including undertaking a major translation project for a lecturer based at Bangor University where I completed my MA. The translations were used towards his PhD research project.
