Native English Translation
Being a good translator means being a good writer. Linguistic research has taught me how language works, but of course, there’s more to translating than that! You need to understand the world the text comes from and the one it’s being translated into. You’ve got to translate what the text means, not only what it says. As a multi-lingual American with a degree in translation who has lived and worked in the USA, Switzerland, France and The Netherlands, I am in a unique position to create high quality, “native” English translations that are accurate, natural and pleasant to read.
Did you know that having your own translator means personal attention, quick responses and a direct line to a trusted partner who knows your needs? Translation agencies tend to outsource jobs to any translator available. I am able to offer a reliable, custom service at a reasonable price.
High-quality service from a trained professional translator
A good translation is a professional, human service. As a professional translator, I believe in collaboration and communication. Sometimes I ask my clients what they mean by a certain phrase or provide multiple translation options. Clients are also free to ask me questions or make special requests. This is all part of delivering a trusted personal service.
Like most translators, I charge per word. This rate depends on the level of difficulty of the text and the deadline proposed. Every project is different and I strive to offer competitive prices without compromising quality. Contact me for a quote.
