Translation and Interpreting
What is the difference between translation and interpreting?
A translator works with written materials, while an interpreter relays speech into another language, either consecutively or simultaneously.
What languages you translate from/into?
I usually translate from English and Spanish into Russian and from Russian and Spanish into English.
Also, I can connect you to the language professionals of other languages, depending on what your needs are. Do not hesitate to contact me with the details of your project to get an exact quote. I will do my best to help you find the right solution for your business.
What are your rates?
Translation rates are based on page count and may vary according to the level of difficulty, urgency and possible formatting of the materials. A standard page in the writing world is 250 words.
Interpreting rates are usually calculated on an hourly basis.
Prices for other services are established individually for each project.
Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 734-1597 for quotes.
How soon you can have my project done?
It depends on how difficult, urgent, and big the project is. Usually, small few-page projects can be done within a day, and larger projects require more time. Please keep in mind that urgent requests are more costly.
Can you provide sworn translations?
I provide both certified and sworn translations, depending on your needs. When certification is required, I provide a Certificate of Translation, or Affidavit of Translation, attesting that the translation is true, accurate, and correct to the best of my knowledge and ability.
Notarized translations are provided by request for personal, immigration, business and academic documents. Please note that the Notary Public does not attest the accuracy of the translation but the authenticity of the translator’s signature.
Can you help me get my project done?
I can help you analyze your needs, hire and manage a translation team. If you have a language-related project and are in need of a team coordinator, you are welcome to contact me as well.
Can you help me find a translator or interpreter for my project?
Absolutely. I can help you find a highly-qualified language specialist for your project. I collaborate with a small team of language professionals and can also connect you to local or international translation and interpreting organizations.
Can you look at my website and tell me if the translation is good?
Feel free to send me a short sample of one or two paragraphs for a free sample of translation or editing work.
