Translation

Document type and format
If you require a document or text to be translated from French or Italian into British English, I would be pleased to hear from you. I can work with a range of printed and electronic formats and file types including Microsoft Word documents and PDFs.  It is preferable that you send me an electronic copy of the document so that I can provide you with a prompt, tailored quote.

Specialist Areas
Professional translators specialise in translating texts that fall within their particular area/s of expertise. It may be that they have professional knowledge or that they have a personal interest in a particular subject. This means that we are familiar with terminology and vocabulary specific to that area and hence, we can ensure that our translations are appropriate. My specialist areas of knowledge are as follows;

  • Creative & Media
  • Market Research
  • Product Descriptions & Retail
  • Research & Education
  • Tourism & Hospitality
  • I also have working experience of translating texts in the following subject areas: Administration, Antiques & Collectables, Arts & Crafts, Certificates, Cinema, Correspondence, Design & Innovation, Ecology & Conservation, Contracts, Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, Events & Festivals, Fiction & Literature, Film, Games, Geography, Horoscopes, Journalism, Marketing & Fundraising, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Natural History, Popular Culture, Printing & Publishing, Radio, Recycling & Waste Management, Television, Theatre, Tourism & Travel

    To give an accurate quotation, please let me know the following:
    - document type (e.g holiday brochure, email correspondence, magazine article, academic essay)
    - text format (e.g. Word Document, PDF, printed copy)
    - the format of the translation I will produce for you (e.g Word Document, PDF, printed copy)
    - total word count of the source text
    - your deadline
    - any additional information

    Working In-House
    Depending on my schedule, I can also be available to translate in-house, at your home or on your business premises.  There is a basic charge of £30.00 per hour. Additional charges may apply depending on your location and the times at which you require the service.

    Other Language Combinations
    If you require a translation in a language combination that I do not offer, I may be able to help you find a suitable linguist within my international network of colleagues.  Just contact me with details of your enquiry.
