Competitive rates

-> Western standard on the lowest side.
-> Special discounts for massive volumes.
-> Trados break-down if applies.
-> 20% extra charge only in rush or weekend jobs with client’s previous consent.

Quality

-> Adequacy: tone, target public, Spanish variant, format requirements, etc.
-> Accuracy: say exactly what you want to say, don’t get your message distorted.
-> Consistency and style
-> Constant attention to detail
-> Field specialist review when necessary
-> Customer care after delivery service

Fast turnaround

Please do not hesitate to make “I-know-time’s-sooo-short-for-that” or “We-don’t-ask-for-this-rush-normally-but...” proposals. If I’m not able to do it I’ll tell you straight away, but you can’t always tell.

Instant communication

You may always reach me, using the following contact methods according to the urgency:
Mail: marta.valdes@gmail.com (You’ll get an answer in a maximum of 24 h)
Skype: marta.valdes170 (I never leave it on if I'm not physically near the PC)
Phone: (+34) 679 83 01 86 (I always have it with me so it’s the better way to get an instant answer, you can also SMS me)

Confidentiality

I guarantee strict confidentiality. Whenever I have to collaborate with some colleagues to reach the client’s desired delivery time, the client is informed and they sign a confidentiality binding agreement too.

My main experience is on IT (networks, telecom, hardware & software, ecommerce, marketing, installation and usage guides), software and website localization, consumer electronics, devices & machinery usage guides as well as on medical devices and general medical translation. However, I have assumed other kind of tasks (legal, literature, marketing for non-IT products, business brochures, cosmetics, clothing, enology and spirits, pumps and drilling, etc.).
Professional references available upon request.
