Translation (Spanish-English)

20


20 per unit - Virtual OK

I will translate up to 1,000 words of a general text (.docx format or similar, please) from Spanish to English (US).

My academic background spans history, philosophy, and the arts, while my professional practice has expanded into translating everything from technical manuals to interviews for sociological research. I have translated six full-length books and two screenplays in a variety of genres. I approach every piece with transcreation in mind, striving to render fluid interpretations of the original material.

I work in two stages: I will first proofread your text using Word's track changes and add any questions I may have in comments. I will submit that draft to you and, using your comments and replies on the first draft, will deliver a second, final draft. Contact me to discuss the translation of specialized or technical texts, or if in a non-textual format (.pdf, photos, etc.).

Training & Qualifications


I have been a professional translator since 2018 and worked in translation prior to that through graduate research at NYU and Duke University. I also hold an MA in Spanish and Latin American Literary and Cultural Studies from NYU. I have translated six books and two movie scripts, along with many other non-fiction and fiction projects.

About Rendon Foy

Hello! I split my professional life between translation and massage therapy (NC LMBT #18767). For the former, my background is in translating creative writing and academic texts. (As a reformed grad ...student in Spanish literature, I can probably come up with some good Spanish-language reads and tidbits about the visual arts, too.) I am planning to expand into medical translation as I strengthen my experience in this field through massage therapy. As of February 2020, I am a licensed massage therapist in the state of North Carolina. Because my own experience has shown me that massage isn't simply relaxing but can be truly therapeutic where other measures may fall short, I hope to make my skills available to anyone in need. Because some of the services I offer are integrated into my formal business practices, I may request receipts of fair-market value for trades both in Simbi and in goods or services.show more
