Please take a look at my 5 stars feedback and the comments from my clients, this way you will make sure you are hiring a professional translator that will fulfil your project requirements.
I am a Spanish and Finnish native speaker and I have lived in both countries for several years. I specialize in translation into these languages mainly from English, although I am able to translate from Spanish into Finnish and vice versa. I also offer research and copywriting services in those languages.
I am proficient with web languages (HTML, CSS, PHP, etc.) and thus I am capable to translate and localize web sites, software, games and applications without altering the script. Additionally, I work with the latest CAT tools such as Trados, SDLX, Passolo, Wordfast, etc.
I assure the highest accuracy and quality in all my translations by using extensive terminology and subject matter searches on the Internet, dictionaries, text books, journals and consultation with clients and experts.
I specialize in the following fields:
- IT: software strings, help files and user manuals localization.
- Medical and pharmaceutical: clinical trial documents, IFUs for medical devices/instruments, product brochures, patient/physician surveys, dental, hair transplantation, veterinary, health care, nutrition.
- Technical documentation: automotive and mechanical engineering, process automation, cargo handling, heating and air conditioning.
- User manuals: power tools, consumer electronics, office equipment, mobile phones.
- Sales and marketing: advertising material, brochures, slogans, newsletters, websites, news articles and press releases, email and correspondence, presentations, questionnaires.
"The first word that comes to my mind when describing Sergio is professionalism. It's not often that I hire someone for a project and he can carry the work with very minimal instructions to an exceptionally high standard. The work I have been doing with Sergio has involved translating and putting together a very specific test that needed some background research on SEO phrases, creativity and dedication, Sergio provided me with all of that and I can without any doubt recommend him and I will keep on using him for further work, fantastic service provider."
