With what may be the the best price/quality ratio in the market, I offer readable, well-researched, and style-sensitive translations in the following fields:
EU-projects, technical (mechanics, home electronics), software, tourism.
I also do legal translations It-No, and En-No especially contracts, court documents, divorce decrees etc.

I'm HST-registered in Ontario.

Translation, at its best, demonstrates love for the original text--the original language, the original words--as well as a love for the process.

Good translation requires care, attention, patience and thought, as well as love of the process, dedication and time.

And these are qualities I try to cultivate in my translation practice.

Admittedly, this love of language doesn't always give you shivers of joy while labouring over difficult texts, but it's love that keeps you going, through the night to get things right before a deadline.

I have been a cultural commuter for most of my adult life, and believe I have developed a cultural sensitivity that helps me understand and translate the meaning behind the words.

My translation experience started in 1994 while finishing my Master's thesis and has been either a side activity, or main work activity for all the years to follow.
