I offer German to English translation and Spanish to English translation in the fields of marketing, tourism, art and literature. My speciality is creative translation, where the original text is transformed into flowing natural English which clearly and accurately reflects the source text. My aim is to produce a text which reads as if written originally in English, and which is exactly right for the occasion.
I work with the following formats – MS Word, PDFs or Excel – and I use MS Word for creative translation, as well as a range of CAT (computer-assisted translation) tools, such as Wordfast, SDL Trados and Memsource.
CAT tools can help guarantee consistency throughout a translation and increase accuracy. The use of these depends on the nature of the source text: in creative translation in particular it is often advantageous to be able to translate more freely than a line by line CAT tool allows.
I provide high quality translations, professionally executed and presented, which offer value for money. The price point for a translation project is influenced by many different factors, such as the research required, the size of the project, and the time-scale. Each project is discussed with the customer, and a full quote provided and agreed.

Proofreading & Editing Services
I offer professional proofreading and editing for all types of texts. There are different levels of text revision, ranging from proofreading, where aspects such as grammar, spelling and punctuation are checked, to editing, where the overall text is also checked for flow, readability and structure. In practice, the level required is discussed with the customer and the rate agreed.
