In 2006 I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a 2.1 honours degree in German. I then spent a long period of time in Germany further improving my vocabulary and knowledge of the language. Upon returning I began working as a freelance translator and set up my own business called Crosswater Translations to promote myself. Since this time I have produced many high-quality translations on specialist subjects such as technology, business and literature. My rates are £0.05 per source word (£50 per 1,000 source words) and I can translate up to 2,500 words per day. I am able to work with documents in Microsoft Word, Excel or Notepad as well as text in HTML and PDF formats.
