I have studied French for over 10 years and Dutch for five. I have expertise in entertainment industry (television, film, theatre) but also in medicine, website translation and academic papers. I work from home so I can turn things around quickly and have a wide range of translation tools available.
While my work is good and I stand by its quality, I can't charge top-dollar just yet, since I haven't been translating for very long. Generally I charge between 15 and 25 cents per word, depending on the difficulty of the document and the need for quick turnaround.
