How to order a translation

  1. Send me your document

    Send the document you want translated or proofread to richardtranslates@gmail.com. Please state your deadline and any special requirements.

  2. Wait for my reply

    I will reply asap and let you know if I can manage the deadline. I will quote the total price for the project.

  3. Confirm your order

    Once you confirm the project and price by email, I will begin working on it.

  4. Receive finished translation and invoice

    I will send you the finished translation along with an invoice to be paid by bank transfer or PayPal within 30 days. Please not that I will require advanced payment for larger projects unless you are a returning customer or reputable organisation.

Rates

My rate for German to English translations is €0.10 per word. For proofreading I charge €30.00 per hour. I have a desktop publishing fee of €20 per hour in the event that this proves to be a time-consuming part of the project on top of translation.
