Hello! My name is Vanessa Walsh and I currently live and work as a freelance translator in Bavaria, 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, and have competency certificates in French and German, with a working understanding of Spanish. I have four 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-themed translation, having translated several documents including novels, academic papers, scripts, business plans, and more, from FRE-ENG, GER-ENG, and SPA-ENG. If you need a translator who has experience in creative writing and editing and can ensure a readable, coherent, and professional translation, you've found her here.
I lived in Germany for 13 years, working as a translator and teacher of English. Five years ago I returned to live in the UK, and took the DipTrans examination of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (passed with a merit in general translation , a pass in social sciences and a distinction in Business). I have experience in translation in the following areas - marketing, business, finance, fashion, websites, religious/spiritual themes, medical/pharmaceutical, university papers and theses, social sciences, literature. I am also happy to take on proofreading, editing and transcription assignments. I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
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.
Let me help you tackle your next translation or proofreading project. Using my cultural knowledge and academic training, I can help you avoid embarrassing mistranslations that can be hard to avoid when dealing with texts not just written in another language, but produced by a different culture.
My home office computer equipment includes two laptop computers (a Mac and a PC, allowing me to run a variety of CAT software, including SDL Trados Studio 2014). I perform daily backups, and I have high-speed Internet access. With each freelance project I undertake, I guarantee high quality work delivered on or before the deadline and prompt responses to your phone calls and e-mails.
I have traveled the world, been to school in four different countries and have a passion for learning. I have been constantly been exposed to the unknown, having to adjust to different cultures and learn new languages. Constant travel has made me confident and I adapt easily to new environments and people.
I completed my secondary education in Austria but am British. I went on to study German and History at university where I graduated with a high 2.1 and a certificate of excellence in the German oral examination.
I value diversity, a wide range of opinions and outlooks. I enjoy working with others but also work well alone. People admire my determination and work ethic, being a night owl I tend to spend my time developing ideas for my next essays and reading.

Technical/marketing German/Swedish/Danish/Spanish/Catalan > English (UK) translator. Specialisation in Renewable Energies. Experience in Level 1/Level 2 IT support. Proofreading and style checking. 3 years experience in translation Project Management.
A little about myself: I have been a multilingual since birth. I was born to a family where everyone is from different countries. Background of my family plays a major role in my having excellent grasp on the languages like English, Hindi, French and German. I was a language teacher to many of the students in the past. It was 2013, when I finally decided to become a professional translator after having been trained by many of the best translators I personally know. I think one of the main things that make me different is my nature of saying "NO/Yes" to a project. I don't take any project that I am even a little unsure about (or) when the project is above my abilities. I do believe that clients' satisfaction plays a major role in any profession, including translation.
I have been a freelance translator since 2000, gaining my degree in interpreting and translating in 1995. I have worked in a vast number of fields therefore providing me with the knowledge to take on diverse projects. I endeavour to meet deadlines 100% on time and demand the utmost quality from myself.
I am a translator with over seventeen years of experience, and have been writing for over twenty years. My experience covers a wide range, in that I have been able to accept work from varied topic areas due to lifelong intensive reading of both fiction and nonfiction, and because as a writer I know how to express myself in many styles. I studied and taught English in Germany for six years, which gave me a keen sense of that linguistic environment.
As a writer, I have published fiction and numerous articles in Canada, Germany, the UK and in the USA, and write for film in close collaboration with a filmmaker.
I am experienced translating into Canadian, American, and UK English.
I have a diverse background with professional experience in translation and project. Adept at managing multiple projects in a face-paced work environment, I am creative, detail-oriented and proactive, with a proven track record of finding innovative solutions to complex problems.
I am jack-of-all trades; a writer, editor, recruiter, and translator. Lately, though, my focus is on the translation industry as it gives me a chance to better myself by challenging myself with all kinds of subjects and topics.
I'm a business and entertainment translator with a first-class Oxford languages degree and an Institute of Linguists translation diploma.

Having worked as a professional translator since 2006, I produce punctual, precise and elegant translations of texts ranging from marketing materials, press releases, leasing agreements and business plans in the medical sector. I also regularly translate texts from the tourism sector, including brochures, newsletters, or websites from hotels and spas. My translations often cover relatively technical material, including descriptions of software or financial products, but also maintain the high level of style important for publicity or ad-related texts. I take pride in having my translations meticulously accurate and at the same time creating a natural sounding English text. Naturally I also promise everything you would expect of a professional - good communication, reasonable rates and a strict adherence to deadlines. So, if you want a high-quality translation, with no hassle, you are in the right place. Thank you!
Writer, Hansard editor, focus on proofreading and clarity. Born in Canada, studied physics until I realised 'crop science' would make a life of travel easier, left for Mexico at 16, have lived in Europe most of my adult life (Israel, Germany, Spain, Czechoslovakia, the UK).
I've been freelance translating while completing my bachelors in Comparative Literature, alongside working on my own translation projects. I have a decent amount of experience translating poetry and other literary sources, which I believe have given me a lot of tools to translate any kind of text -- including marketing, scientific, and so forth.
A brief bio: I was born in Belgium and moved to the United States when I was young, hence I was thrown early on into different languages. Today, I speak/read/write in English, Dutch/Flemish, German, French, and Italian. The exchange of information and ideas across linguistic and geographic borders greatly interests me, which is why, I believe, I enjoy translating texts so much.
If you would like to know anything more about me, please do not hesitate to reach out.
I look forward to hearing from you!
