High-quality translation requires precision, patience and curiosity. Therefore, I translate in subject areas that touch me, and that I feel have a positive impact. A good translator translates into her mother tongue, as this is the language that is most deeply ‘felt’. Having always been immersed in both languages, I translate both from French to English and from English to French.
Areas of Expertise
My experience and technical training make me most proficient in the following areas:
Ecology | General Medicine
Psychology | Sociology
Disability | Humanitarian Response
I will inquire about:
– The reason and context in which the document was written
– The target audience and final format
– The use of specific terminology
And, will need a contact person within your organisation, in case clarifications are required.
Projects go through a rigorous translation and proofreading process to ensure that your translated document:
– is accurate, consistent, reliable and grammatically sound,
– clearly conveys the correct message, in the desired style and tone,
– is culturally adapted.
Projects are approached individually, and pricing takes into account a number of factors including volume and complexity.
..the other side of the tapestry
Very professional customer service and high-quality translation.
I recently entrusted Naomi Walker with the translation of some pages of the Tissular Approach to Osteopathy website, none of which had been translated into English. I salute the quality of her work, which is highly professional, as well as the quality of the relationship established, which enabled us to produce a very professional end result.
I should like to extend my heartfelt thanks.
Naomi has the ability to work independently and in close cooperation with us. It is important to underline her reliability, many appropriate initiatives and analytical skills. She has the ability to listen and exchange ideas and approaches. She performed the translation with rigour and a “scientific” approach.
It is a pleasure to work with Naomi. Her technical knowledge and professional level as a translator is top. Personally, she is easy to relate to and willing to move towards the client. I am happy to know her and to know that if I have a text which needs to be translated, even in short time, I can rely on her.
Naomi Walker has been providing Handicap International with French-to-English translations in a range of subjects since 2015. She is conscientious, curious and versatile, and careful to meet the specifications of the projects entrusted to her.
I am happy with Naomi’s services because of the high quality of the translations and her dedication and commitment.
Naomi has worked for us translating publications and technical documents. Her excellent grasp of energy and environmental contexts, and her understanding of the associated vocabulary, has ensured timely and relevant translations. Her thoroughness means we spend less time on proof reading – we know we can count on her quality work for our translation needs.
