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. You can find more details about my translation and editing workflows by clicking on the relevant links. I am open to using other translation software and content management systems upon request.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept payment by bank transfer in British pound sterling, euros or US dollars. I also accept card payments through Paypal. Payment by card is the best option for small payments in Croatian kuna and other currencies as you will receive the Mastercard/Visa exchange rates.
