Translation is the act of conveying written text from one language to another. The meaning of the original (source) language must be maintained, as well as the right style and level of terminology for the intended audience. Depending on the subject matter and purpose, varying degrees of cultural adaptation might be needed to suit the destination (target) language.
I am a native English speaker and I translate from French and Spanish into English.
My rates for translation are typically per word or per project, depending on the project specifics and what you prefer.
Certified Translation: In my capacity as a registered Chartered Linguist with the CIOL, I can provide certified translations from French into English. This is charged at an additional per page fee on top of translation or review of an existing translation that needs to be certified, plus postage costs for the hardcopy to be sent to you.
