[CLOSED] [Paid] Experienced English-Spanish translator

#1 Post by VSS_Valdez » Mon Jul 13, 2020 9:56 pm

Hello there, my name is Valdez. As the title says, I'm an experienced English to Spanish (and vice versa) translator and beginner writer. I've had previous experience making VNs, though the one I was contributing the most didn't get to see the light of day.
My main goal as a translator is to make them as accurate and close to the source material as possible, which I intend to achieve through my knowledge or by directly asking the writer.
In regards to my writing, I'm aware it's not the best, as it's an activity I got into somewhat recently, so I'm hoping I get to join a team and contribute in small ways as my skill gradually improves, so I can start working on my own VN.

In regards to topics, I'm ok with working on safe themes, adult/mature, or anything in between, simply send me a message or contact me on Discord with a summary of your project and I'll see if I'm interested in it (we can also discuss things like deadlines and upfront payment). My discord is VSS_Valdez#5419

Projects I've worked on:
-And now, time to study - By Rasalhague
-Pirates of Gensokyo: the Quest for the Heart of Alice Margatroid - By Rinzai Gigen
-Lotus Reverie - By Keinart
-I'm a SIDE CHARACTER in a BL story! - By Red-Baby
-Maid Mansion - By Crazy Cactus Entertainment
-Budacanta's demo - By Alianora La Canta

Translation: $5 USD for every 1000 words. 30-40% upfront (can be discussed).

Translation slot: OPEN


Have a good day.

Valdez is a dedicated and serious translator, with a good knowledge of both English and Spanish languages. He knows how to manage figures of speech and expressions in Spanish, which, more often than not, are hard to translate faithfully for an English audience to understand. He did an excellent job writing my script in English, carrying out a thorough research of culture aspects and environments, and always making sure to convey not only words or sentences, but the most important thing of all: the true spirit of my original narration. He was easy to communicate with at all times, and in essence, it was a true pleasure working with him.

I definitely recommend his services to anyone interested in translating their works from English to Spanish or vice versa.

VSS Valdez is as humble as he is talented; don't be fooled by my prosaic accounting of his work, since I speak plainly of it only so as to honour his restraint. Over the last month he and I have worked together to create the best possible translation one could imagine for my TouHou fangame Pirates of Gensokyo: the Quest for the Heart of Alice Margatroid*. Senor Valdez had to contend with puns, wordplay, alliteration, slang, obscure pirate references, even more obscure TouHou jokes, as well as my own disorientation as a primarily English speaker. In spite of the difficulties, as well as because of them, we never lost the thread of our conversation, nor the Spirit of the Original Text, and we both learned lots. Valdez truly lives up to his resume and reputation. He is patient, organized, clever when necessary, attentive to both detail and context, knowledgeable, honest, curious, respectful, and eager to learn. He respects the languages he works in, including the code, and he is forthcoming in his opinions and mistakes. blah blah blah, would recommend.

After contributing to two projects (the ones above this comment), I've decided to once again offer my services for free, and this time I'll open two slots.
I want to thank both Rasalhague and Rinzai Gigen for giving me the opportunity to work on their VNs, I've learned a lot thanks to them.

I'll update the main post shortly, but most of it will remain the same.

After working on a few more projects, I've gathered enough confidence to make some important changes, the main post has been updated

Post has been updated, changes have been made to services offered, I'm going back to translations. Currently on vacations, which means I now have more free time.
