Pricing

I can’t tell you quite yet what your translation will cost: I’ll need to see it first. But that’s no problem – just send the file to me by uploading it here (or attach it to an email by clicking here) and I’ll let you know exactly what the damage will be.

If that’s too much uncertainty, here are some helpful pointers: I charge between £50-60 per hour, or between about 25-35p per word. Sounds a lot? Maybe it is: there are cheaper translators out there, but they tend to produce work that doesn’t quite sound like proper English. At best. And at worst, their translations will be just plain wrong.

If the translation is for a good cause (e.g. a charity) or the project is more a labour of love than a commercial enterprise (like a poem, or piece of experimental literature) and you’re feeling disheartened by the prices above, don’t be. Get in touch and we can negotiate, or I’ll suggest some capable folk who might be able to help.
