Pricing is always a matter of negotiation and depends on the type and complexity of your project.

Typically, I charge an hourly rate with a two-hour minimum plus mileage reimbursement for in-person assignments.
Phone and video interpreting are charged per minute with a minimum of 15 minutes per session.

Translation, Editing, and Proofreading

Each project is unique, and there are many factors determining translation cost, such as the word count, document complexity, and deadline.

I offer per-word rates based on the document word count. One page includes 250 words, or 1800 characters with spaces.

I work with standard Microsoft-released software, such as Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, as well as various CAT tools, such as Trados, WordFast, MemSource, and memoQ. Other software is available upon request.

Urgent requests

I strive to provide my clients with excellent service quickly and efficiently.
Please keep in mind that additional charge for urgent projects might apply.


There is a 20% surcharge for processing handwritten documents.

Certified and Notarized Translations and Apostille

I gladly certify my own translations and provide Certificate of Translation (Translator’s Affidavit).

I also have a notary available in San Francisco to notarize the translation if you require it. Standard notary fee per signature in California is $15.
