Is this someone you've been looking for?

Every project is different and I'm afraid there is no such thing as a "one-fits-all" translation rate. There are literally dozens of factors that affect translation rates: the complexity of your source text, file format (hand-written and non-editable electronic documents tend to be much more expensive), how fast you want it back, your budget expectations, etc. Please, contact me and I'll be happy to give you an exact quote.

My biography and experience

In the past 14 years, I worked both as an in-house translator and founder and manager of a translation agency, before I set up my own freelance business. I chose to specialize in marketing translations — the most creative type of translation after literary prose. Since 2008 I've been translating and transcreating copy for hotel websites and restaurants, articles on luxury goods, marketing materials for medical products. I blog on marketing translation, take part in conferences as attendee and speaker, sharing expertise with others via publications, webinars, and training.
