Sort of two, but I only do French-English rarely nowadays and am getting terribly rusty...

EL>RO and EN>RO regularly.

I also offer RU>RO, but had only few small projects for this pair. The rates practiced are generally low and I stopped marketing myself for RU>RO.

2 last year, basically; 2 this year though not the same:

Hardly did any Dutch last year, hardly any Spanish this year.

Wish you all a happy translators' day

One big main pair, but as that is Danish to English, I do in fact take on Swedish and Norwegian to English.

They are officially three languages, and for good reason - there are pitfalls, and I warn clients that I am not an expert in these languages.

I read French and German in another life, but cannot pretend I could take on any regular work in those languages now.

De-En, Pt-En, and Fr-En in order of frequency this year.

French to English seems to have taken a back seat lately. I try to compensate by reading French online, and looking at KudoZ, but it is not the same as getting stuck in, elbow-deep. I find it fascinating how with each language pair one needs to use a different set of "linguistic gymnastics" skills.

En-Ru and It-Ru. And this year I've done more from Italian than from English.

Spanish and Portuguese to English.

There has been a lot of demand for Portuguese lately. I'm guessing that 65% of my volume has been from Portuguese this year.
