I am a native English/French/German speaker. I was born in Germany from an Irish father and a French mother and recieved my education in a French-German school which also taught english as it would be taught in a predominantly english speaking country. Having grown up with all three languages at once, I developped a fluency and a relative ease for translating one language into another. I also developped a taste for learning languages and can now say I have fluent spanish, both spoken and written and a very good level of Mandarin Chinese. I also have a good level of italian both oral and written.
I have had previous experience in translation in different companies and different settings. I worked in a software localization company (Keywords intl.) which focused on translating all the text from a given video game or software package into a given language. This was a complex job as it involved translating many cultural references and huge amounts of somewhat obscure and technical text.
I also worked within the Medical Insurance Company Ireland ltd. where I also translated advertisment brochures and contracts from French to English, Spanish to English and vice versa.
I am a responsible, dilligent and efficient worker and look forward to job offers from you.
