I believe that one of the key qualities in a translator should be a willingness to learn. We work across a variety of domains and regardless of our subject of study at university, we have this really unusual and exciting chance to learn new things on the job, every day!
After my initial years as a freelance translator and then a postgraduate student, specializing in translation, I headed the translation cell of the Alliance Française of Madras for two years. This gave me valuable experience not only across a variety of domains (technical, journalistic, semi-legal, pedagogic) but also in time-management, managing a large translation project and efficiently researching accurate terminology.
I guarantee quality work and adequately researched translations. I do not hesitate to contact clients for clarifications as I believe this saves time in the reviewing period.
