About me
Welcome to my profile page!
I am Marius Reika, independent English to Lithuanian technical translator. I have 9 years of experience in the technical translation field, and a BA in English language and translation (Vilnius University).

Besides translation, I provide services of software and website localisation, as well as of editing and proofreading.
More information can be found on my website Lithuanian Decoded.

My work philosophy
I accept only those projects that are within my expertise and whose deadlines I am able to meet, and I translate only into my mother tongue.
I ask questions. This is to ensure the best quality possible and eliminate any doubts, that I might have regarding some terms or phrases in the text.
If I am unsure of anything, I will let you know about it. You will not receive any unwanted surprises from me.
Client satisfaction is my primary objective.
If you have any questions during or after the project, I will do my best to help you and provide a solution.

I specialise in the following areas:

o Automotive
o Travel related texts
o Information technology
o Mechanics / mechanical engineering
o Electronics / electrical engineering
o User / operation manuals
o Game localisation (mobile, video, PC)

I am a keen amateur mechanic: I overhauled the engine of my Kawasaki KLR 250 by myself and traveled from Lithuania to South Africa (2009–2010) by land only, taking care of most of the mechanical problems also myself.

I crossed Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, parts of Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia (2011–2012) on a bicycle, which broke more than twice and many times I was the one who had to fix it.
In 2013–2015 me and my partner travelled 25,000 km around Latin America in a VW Campervan, born in 1983 in the factories of Argentine. That was one good car maintenance course!
I love mechanics and I like translating technical stuff and travel related documentation. 

Past projects
Some completed translations in the technical field: 
o Cars and trucks repair and maintenance database (590 000 words)

o Mobile games localisation (10 000 words)

o Translation of MSDS documents (80 000 words)
o Fire detectors' specifications and declaration of performance (6 400 words)
o Komatsu machinery operation manuals (60 000 words)

Rates depend on the project: urgency, difficulty of the terminology, format of the document (translation of scanned documents, AutoCAD drawings, and PDF files is more expensive).
A surcharge shall be applied, if you need the translation the same day, or if your project requires me to work over the weekend or overnight.
