    Professional practices anne wagner-findeisen endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
    Kindly view my PORTFOLIO OF SAMPLE TRANSLATIONS (below) for examples of broad range of translations, in particular legal, from French, Polish and Spanish into professional legal English that your clients and attorneys can understand. Substantial volume of repeat business with clients of several years' duration, both for original translations and proofreading/editing of voluminous legal submissions and memoranda. Some examples of my work can be seen at,, and others.

    I have been a practicing lawyer, admitted to the Bar in New York state, the Federal Bar in the Eastern, Western and Southern Districts, and the US Supreme Court since 1977. Over the past few years, I have shifted increasingly to translation in view of the scheduling flexibility it affords me and because I so thoroughly enjoy dealing with the law of foreign jurisdictions. I continue to write independent legal articles in areas that interest me (please see CV)

    I am experienced in Polish, French and Spanish commercial and EU law (competition, legislative, judicial, commercial, banking, securities and investment matters); wide range of commercial, real estate, corporate, pharmaceutical, administrative and constitutional laws and regulations (judicial and administrative rulings, banking, securities, bankruptcy, electricity, telecommunications, employment, pharmaceutical and legal treatises). I have translated legla treatises and law review materials into English from French and Polish. I have worked with Algerian, Moroccan, Congolese, Argentine, Spanish, Colombian, Belgian, Cote d'Ivoire and Tunisian laws. Most importantly, I know and deliver what the client is looking for in terms of clarity and accuracy of legal texts and provide a product that is highly satisfactory to law firms and lawyers. Willing to negotiate rates on larger projects. For a modest additional fee, an sworn and notarized certification of translation of the text can be provided (see sample text below)

    I hold a law degree (Juris Doctor) as well as an advanced specialized law degree (LLM) in International Trade and Business Transactions.
    I grew up bilingual as a native US English as well as Polish speaker. At the age of 8, I moved to France for several years, attended French school and acquired near-native fluency. Similarly, studied Spanish in Saltillo, Mexico and later spent two years living and studying in Madrid, Spain.

    I have a BA in French Literature and in Spanish Literature (double major) and an MA in French Literature. In brief, I am fluent in French, Polish, and Spanish. having lived and studied in all three countries.
    My work as a translator allows me more free time to travel to various parts of the world. In the past four years I have visited South Africa, Korea, Guatemala, the Ukraine, Romania, Iceland, China (several trips to Yunnan and Tibet), Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Greece, in addition to annual trips to France and spending a portion of each year in Poland.
