Professional practices Mélissa Goetghebuer endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Dear all,

I am a French native speaker and certified translator, graduated from Institut libre Marie Haps (ILMH, translation Master's degree specialized in European institutions and international relations).

I work mainly from English and Russian into French and specialized in such fields as European institutions, politics/government and law. Indeed, I am working on a daily basis for European institutions as the Language Lead/Lead translator/Reviser for EU projects of a translation agency working with the European Parliament, the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee as well as the European Court of Auditors. My previous part-time job as a legal assistant gave me the chance to get more linguistic knowledge in the legal field. Furthermore, I often translate texts relating to history, travel or business letters.

Here are my rates, all depending on the subject matter:

- English/Russian into French translation: from 0.08 € to 0.15 €/word.
- English/Russian into French proofreading: 0.04 €/word.
- English/Russian/French transcription: 2€/minute.

I can translate up to 3500 words a day, depending on the subject matter. I answer to your requests sent by email within the hour, every day between 8h and 22h.

Please find hereinabove my up-to-date resume and feel free to check my Project History or to send an email should you have any question to ask at

I would be pleased to give you any further information.
