To Whom It May Concern:
Thanks for the consideration. Best rate per source word for translation: $0.06 USD, rush: $0.09.
I am a L.A. based freelance Spanish, French, English Translator-Interpreter, Dialect Coach & V.O. artist (Venezuelan-French & American citizenships) with more than 13 years experience. I was raised in both Venezuela and France and consequently I am a native speaker of both Spanish (Castilian) and French (Parisian) (I was born in Venezuela and moved to France at 5 years old).
I have Venezuelan, French and American nationalities.
I am an accredited Translator-Interpreter of the French Consulate in Los Angeles, CA. (last work: interpreter for Santa Monica’s Mayor, ACNUSA President for a business meeting and SAMSUNG E3 2016 Convention)
I am also a Freelance indie producer so I have work on many translations of scripts for TV and theater. I just wrapped the transcription/translation of TV documentary about Boxing in Cuba from Spanish into English. Last subtitling work: last season of cartoon "American Dad" (Fox).
As a lot of commercials are now filming the English and the Spanish versions consecutively with the same actors for both American and Hispanic markets and networks, my latest jobs are 3 TARGET commercials (trilogy for christmas toys) and 6 commercials for LITTLE CAESARS PIZZA, 1 commercial for Time Warner Cable and other one for TOYOTA as Spanish Dialect Coach on set for a bilingual shoots and a 15 days medical interpreting in French for Keiser permanente. I am now available!
For the past 4 years, I have been working as a freelance Translator and Project Manager for several language companies around the world and I have been a DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS FOR FRENCH & HISPANIC MARKETS for World Language Communications. We also have recently completed a 27 hour French and Japanese to English transcription/translation for a documentary from Sanofi France, in which I supervised a team of 10 transcribers/translators working for several months and did 5 hrs of transcription/translation into French.
I am also currently under review for a Title III security clearance for Spanish > English and English > Spanish.
