Greetings future potential client,
I am a trilingual professional translator on the look-out for reliable, professional long-term clients on various platforms.
I specialize in the translation of legal/contractual documents in Norwegian, English, and French.
Of course, my linguistic skills apply for other areas as I have experience translating everything from medical and technical manuals to business articles and even e-sports.
I guarantee an error-free, manual translation, localized if needed be, while always respecting given deadlines.
My cosmopolitan background and analytical interests in other cultures, together with a command of several European languages, have also left me confident in handling localized content that require the reconciliation of different national approaches to otherwise common problems.
I offer multilingual services as followed:
- Specialized & General Multilingual Translation: inter alia medical, literary, scientific, legal & localization
from French, Russian, English, Norwegian (Bokmål & Nynorsk), Spanish & Dutch (as source languages) into French & English (as target languages),
as well as Proofreading, Editing & Writing services in French & English.
- Multilingual (Self-directed) Education Guidance
- Research on Multilingualism for Peace
- Art in all its forms
- Wellbeing through Meditation, Sport, Better Sleep & a Healthy Diet
The rate I start from is 0.09 EU / word. However, keep in mind that it depends on the type, timing and length of the project. I agree to work for a lower rate when I work for NGOs for example. I always consider the rate to be an open dialogue between me and my partners.
I use Trados Studio 2019 as a CAT Tool and I am also available for the moment for any urgent assignment under the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. Please contact me any time.
As a certified freelance translator, I provide a range of linguistic services:
Translation EN/ES/NO/NL > FR;
My fields of specialization are: agriculture, culture, education, hobbies (cooking, music, sports), human sciences, international organizations & diplomacy, legal, technical, tourism.
In this context, my priorities are meticulousness, punctuality and quality. In order to respect these professional values, I only translate into my mother tongue, which is French.
I have 20 years of experience as a tour leader, interpreter and translator for German and French-speaking tourists, presenting and marketing Scandinavia as a tourist destination, as a receptionist in hotels, as a customer consultant for an international tour operator and as a translator of technical texts, user manuals and commercial catalogs from English, German, French and Danish to Norwegian, using CAT-tools. I also have experience with website administration and web shops from many years of work with sales and marketing.
My mother tongue is Norwegian, I am fluent in English, German, French and Lithuanian.
My family, friends and colleagues know me as friendly, positive and active, but also as a person who enjoys working independently and purposefully. I have very good communication skills, I love challenges, and I am reliable.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you need translation, editing or proofreading in any of the languages mentioned above.
Sincerely Andreas Coldevin
