Language Services Offered for German English (Italian German, Italian English on request)
RATES DEPEND ON THE COMPLEXITY OF YOUR SOURCE TEXT AND PROPOSED SCHEDULE. QUOTES ARE ONLY ISSUED ONCE THE FULL SOURCE TEXT IS MADE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW. SPECIAL RATES APPLY TO WEEKEND WORK AND RUSH JOBS.
Translations including proof-reading and editing (Please forward source text for a quote)
Your source text will be translated, proof-read and edited in order to ensure high quality. Proof-reading is done by a second native speaker who did not translate the text. Even the best translator would not be able to simply delete the source text and, at times, extensive background research from his or her brain. The obvious may not be so obvious to the first time reader of your text. A second reader is able read the translation again with a fresh mind. Rates include the full service of translation and proof-reading. Rates DO NOT include formatting of texts, e.g. sources in pdf format.
Translation of scientific and technical texts including editing and proof-reading (Please forward source text for a quote)
Translations of scientific or technical texts are carried out in the same way as all other translations, i.e. editing and proof-reading is included. Special attention is given to the correct usage of technical terms. As an all-rounder in the natural sciences and geography related subjects (see specializations) I am able to understand the science of your source text and translate appropriately using scientific language.
Terminology research plays an important role when translating scientific or technical texts. This is why the rate charged may vary according to the nature of each text. If you are interested in further information about how you can make your translations more consistent, especially in regards to terminology, I would be happy to assist.
Proof-reading (Rate €30 plus VAT per hour plus VAT unless otherwise stated)
Proof-reading is only offered in the English language. Please note that proof-reading by itself does not include editing, i.e. changes will be suggested using the track changes function. You can then accept or not accept the suggested change.
Proof-reading AND editing (Rate €30 per hour plus VAT unless otherwise stated)
Your text will be proof-read and edited accordingly. That is, the source and target text is compared for accuracy and style. Any corrections or improvements required will be carried out and the final text delivered.
English Conversation (Please inquire about rates)
If you are located in the Osnabrück/Melle/Diepholz area, I would be happy to talk to you about options to provide English conversational classes at your company.
