Meet Terry, One of Our French to English and Spanish to English NAATI Certified Translators

Terry has always had a passion for languages, particularly French, Spanish and English—very fitting. The fire for languages began at an early age, and from high school he was studying French, following this with several years of correspondence study. His continuing curiosity and interest motivated him to move to France, where he lived for over a year. Time was spent studying, working, absorbing the language—and the wine. By living in the country that is native to the language that he was attempting to learn, Terry
was able to pick up nuances that simple textbook-learning and courses could not provide. Today, Terry has a thorough understanding of conversational and formal French.

Terry is the Director of Trada. He holds a Graduate Diploma of Translation from the University of Western Sydney and a Bachelor’s degree in French Language and Literature from the University of Queensland.

Terry can tell you first-hand that translation is not easy. It is a lot more than simply changing text word for word into another language. In most cases, a literal translation will make no sense—it’s about the
meaning, not the vocabulary. Terry advises emerging translators to familiarise themselves with the topic and the text at hand; read it first before picking up the pen.

Terry is one of Trada’s French to English and Spanish to English NAATI certified translators. NAATI stands for the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters. This is an internationally recognised authority, and in Australia, it is the only certification that proves that the holder is a genuine interpreter or translator.

The prospect of doing business in Australia is increasingly attractive to foreign investors. With globalization gradually accreting its way across all sides of the globe and the constant need for translation services by commerce, Brisbane French to English and Spanish to English translators are more in-demand than ever.

Trada, a leader in French to English and Spanish to English translation in Brisbane, is committed to bringing you quality and accuracy in its work. You can speak to Terry today by calling Trada on 0430 355 305 or email him on info@trada.com.au. You’ll be saying Comme ç’est bon! or ¡Qué bien!
