FAQ

How long will the job take?

In a typical working day, I can comfortably translate roughly 2000 words or language edit a text 6000–7000 words long. I plan my time accordingly. As I typically have several projects ongoing, I reserve slots for all work. A typical turnaround time for editing an academic article is 1–2 weeks, and translation 2–4 weeks. I always do my best to accommodate my clients’ deadlines.

Do you charge an express fee?

If you need a job doing urgently (within 48 hours), my fees increase by 50%.

What tools do you use to complete jobs to a high standard?

I typically use SDL Trados 2019 for translation jobs, and PerfectIt & The Editor’s Toolkit when editing in Microsoft Word.
