 What do you need?
Somebody you can rely on to get the job done, including very large jobs taking more than one week. Somebody who is flexible in terms of doing that little bit extra to make the client happy: a few extra words for a graphic here and there; rearranging my own projects to accommodate tight deadlines with your clients; providing feedback on clients' requests and other translators' work, etc.
Basically, someone who is dependable; who knows the source language thoroughly, but also who can edit English (EN_UK / EN_US, etc.) perfectly.

What do I need?
Agencies and end clients who pay on time and in full. Projects that are substantial and regular; I cannot pay the bills translating a couple of CVs every month. I need regular, bulk-volume work. I honestly don't mind doing free test translations, but I do mind doing them only to pass them and never hear from you again. Please only contact me if you want ME to work for YOU. Let's please not waste each other's time.

In sum:

I am an experienced, qualified, professional freelance translator

... and I am looking for

serious, professional agencies that are seeking a mutually beneficial, long-lasting cooperation. Thank you for your interest in my services.
