Literary translation, fiction and non-fiction book translation a speciality.
I am an English native speaker with a BA Degree in English, German and Linguistics, and I have been translating and editing professionally on a freelance basis for the past 20 years.
I hold a B.A. (Languages) degree, two Project Management diplomas, a certificate in html/css and web design, as well as a TEFL diploma, amongst others.
Fluent in English, Afrikaans, German and Dutch, I offer multiple language-based services, including professional translations, and literary translation contract services.
I regularly use various CAT tools, including MemoQ, SmartCat; SDL; MateCat; XML; etc., however I prefer to translate 'by hand' wherever possible.
I relocated permanently to Ireland in 2012, and am based in Dublin. My professional website is at: www.athascomms.com
