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. Four 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, Quality Management and copy-writing assignments. I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
Studied translation at alliance francaise and vocational education committee colleges: qualified as commercial translator ( french ) and irish association of translators ( german )
Have worked for New Books in German, xplanation.com, globalvoices, stealth translations.
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.
