Professional Freelance Translator
Spanish, French <> English


Dear Manager/Owner,

I write to offer my services as a professional freelance translator. My language pairs are FR<>EN and SP<>EN. From what I could gather from your website, you are a full-service agency offering translations in many languages in many different fields. You no doubt receive many résumés from prospective translators working in my languages and competition for freelance work is fierce. Still, I really appreciate your taking just a moment to review my information and credentials, as I feel I can be a real asset to your team and contribute to your success.

• Rate: $0.05 per word. Minimum charge: $15.00. Proofreading: $0.02 per word. $30.00 per hour for phone interpretation.
• Native language: American English.
• Experience: Literally millions of words translated. I have worked for over 10 years in the language field as a translator, interpreter, and teacher.
• Quick turnaround time. I know your customers are in a hurry. I can help you accommodate their needs.
• Attention to detail. I proofread all of my work to avoid typos and omissions.
• Formatting. I work with tables in MS Word so that the target resembles the source and is easy to read.
• Availability. I work on weekends and respond quickly to emails.
• Customizable product. Every agency has their particular tastes and I do my best to keep them happy!
• Strict confidentiality guaranteed. I am willing to sign confidentiality agreements.
• Passion for language, grammar, and vocabulary.
• Extensive exposure to the Spanish and French speaking cultures. My wife is a Quebecer and I have traveled to France and to over 10 nations where Spanish is spoken.
• Professional and personal references attesting to the above.

​Please consider my fields of expertise:

▪ Certified translations of personal documents (Birth, marriage, and death certificates, adoption papers, divorce decrees, tax returns, educational transcripts, contracts and agreements, property deeds and transactions.)
▪ Legal documents. (Complex litigation in business law, foreign investment disputes, lawsuits, and insurance.)
▪ Business documents. (Accounting and corporate documents.)
▪ Medical. (Medical records, reports, and articles, as well as pharmaceutical industry documents.)
▪ General subject matter: (Emails and personal correspondence.)

In conclusion, while I may not be the only qualified translator out there, I do wholeheartedly believe that a long-term collaboration between us would be pleasant and profitable for both of us, and that is precisely my purpose in writing this letter. I want to be a translator you can really rely on, someone you can come back to time and again over the years. Please feel free to test me out!

You can contact me via email at to further discuss any potential collaboration. I’ve attached my résumé for your consideration and I also invite you to visit my translator profile at: Thank you for your consideration.
