Dear friends,

I would like to offer you my services as a freelancer translator for the following language pairs:

* Korean to Spanish

* Chinese to Spanish

I have experience in technical, commercial and literary translations (Korean-Spanish). For this language pair, I have worked with translation agencies and publishers on a regular basis over the last 10 years and have a one year specialization course on literature translation.

As for the Chinese to Spanish language pair, I work as part of a team with native Chinese translators who are also experienced in the commercial/business sector.
For samples and additional information, please visit my blog:
(Korean-Spanish literature translation)

In all cases, our rates include accurate translation and proofreading by native speakers of the target language.
We have recently worked for Spanish and Korean translation agencies with 0.08 EUR per source language word as a general rate. This figure is flexible according to particular conditions such as volume, degree of specialization, etc.
