Frequently Asked Questions
How does your process work?
For translations, I look at the text to be translated and give you a quote, based on the word count and the level of difficulty.
If you want more than a translation, for instance a freshly written English text, or a translation with a copywritten flavor (also known as transcreation), then I’ll send you a questionnaire for you to fill out, to give me a clear idea of your needs and expectations, so that I can produce a text that’s exactly on point and I’ll send you a quote for my fee.
We agree on a deadline and I get to work on your translation, transcreation or copywriting job. Before I deliver it, I’ll have it proofread by a second English native speaker to make sure it’s as flawless as possible.
Do you handle all types of translations?
In my 13 years as a translator, I’ve worked on a variety of texts from diverse fields. Slowly, I started finding out what kinds of texts I didn’t want to take on and started narrowing down the type of work I was prepared to take on.
In recent years, I realized that my love for writing and my skill at producing informative and persuasive texts make me a perfect fit for marketing translation, transcreation and copywriting. However, my eclectic pre-translation professional background and my experience in translating a wide range of texts from different sectors serves me well in understanding the principles behind these texts that are produced for marketing purposes.
Do you also translate from English into German, Dutch or French?
Even though I speak other languages fluently, I only translate into my mother tongue, which is English. If you’re looking for someone to translate from English into those languages, I can refer you to a trusted colleague, like Silvia Schulz who’s an expert in SEO and is brilliant at Conversionzauber.
Does the quality of your translations differ depending on the language you're translating from?
No, it doesn’t differ. Although I speak my source languages with varying degrees of fluency, my reading comprehension level for all of them is on a par with an advanced native speaker of these languages. What’s more, when it comes to delivering marketing translations, the quality of the English produced is what makes the difference, and that’s where I shine.
What my clients say
You nailed the authors’ tone brilliantly. You also managed to differentiate perfectly between the more literary narrative and the more scientific and specialised aspects.
Thank you again for thoughtfully taking into account the customs of other countries and for doing your own research when things were unclear. We were happy to accept all your suggestions for changes.
