As a professional typesetter and layout artist, I have long experience of working both in English and in all the major Western European languages. Many of the jobs I do also entail substantial editorial input, and I am happy to undertake copy editing etc. either in its own right or as part of an overall DTP assignment.
Most of my current work is on large illustrated art catalogues running to hundreds of pages, usually following a specified design. However, in the past I've typeset just about every kind of publication: medical and scientific bulletins for the UN, Mitsubishi car manuals, technical and industrial journals, annual reports, Brother machine-knitting pattern books, sports and fashion magazines, textbooks, poetry books, you name it!
Before setting up my own foreign-language photosetting business way back when, and later going solo working in QuarkXPress on the Mac, I was employed in two translation agencies and also worked as a local newspaper reporter and as a trade journal editor, as well as doing a lot of secretarial work.
