I am a Canadian citizen, native speaker of both English and French. Moreover I have studied Spanish for 5 years, and lived in Spain and South America for a total of over 2, therefore consider myself highly fluent. I have also worked in Italy in Packaging Industry Sales (from Italian towards French and English speaking markets) for almost three years and have a high level of understanding of Italian. Finally, I can understand a moderate level of German and Portuguese. I have a degree in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo and and have a high level of experience and understanding of technical terms.I am proficient in using CAT tools, in particular Kilgray's MemoQ, but also SDL Trados Studio 2014, Wordfast Pro, Across, and other CAT software. I am also skilled in dealing with OCR, DTP and PDF documents. I can translate about 2500 words per day, depending on the complexity of the material.I also do voiceover work. I have a high-definition studio voice microphone and am particularly well-suited for this task. Finally, I am also proficient in professional transcription, in any of my working languages.Please feel free to get in touch for any samples and/or references.
