I specialise in flexibility and creativity.
I am in my final year of a BA Korean degree, with a focus on literature and history. I have spent the past year working largely on subtitling and translation in the arts and humanities. I also lived in Germany and Switzerland for 10 years.
- Translation from Korean or German
- Translation into British or American English both possible
- Translation of any non-specialised content possible
- Translation of creative content such as scripts, literature etc. possible
- Video subtitling possible
Content I translate
Arts, Entertainment and literary content
I have edited subtitles on Korean dramas for a year on Viki, the biggest website for watching Asian TV outside of Asia. I have also translated children literature from German into English.
History and Humanities content
My degree is largely focused on history and culture so I can translate specialised content in these fields.
Market Research, Interviews, Non-Specialised content
I have translated market research and other non-specialised content for over a year for various companies. Industries have included manufacturing, technology, marketing and more.
This is how I solved a recent terminology, style, or linguistic challenge
In a children’s fantasy book I translated recently, there were many made up words such as the names of games, as well as names of characters that had a meaning. I created new words English that would be easy to understand whilst maintaining the feel of the made up words in the original language, and also translated the names into English in a way that incorporated the meaning but still sounded like a name.
Keira translated a children’s book for me. This was partly a challenge, for example because some passages contained specially-coined vocabulary. Keira paid attention to detail and proved to be very cooperative. She took my comments into account and edited the text thoroughly, always looking for the best words and expressions, polishing the style and also keeping the recipients in mind. I can therefore recommend her as a translator.
