Sworn translator – interpreter

Certificate obtained at Ghent University in June 2021.

    Working method

    If I can help you with a translation, I would like to know:

    • the language you need a translation from,
    • if the translation has to be sworn,
    • the volume (expressed in number of words or, in case of birth certificates etc, pages), and
    • when you need the translation (the deadline).

    With these data, I can make an offer for a translation from English, Russian or French to Dutch and we can discuss the terms of delivery. As soon as we agree, I can start working with your text.

    If you need an interpreter, please let me know

    • what your discussions will be about (the subject),
    • when and where they will take place, and
    • how much time is provided.

    With this information, I can make a price offer for an interpreting assignment.

    As opposed to other professions, freelance translators and interpreters don’t have official price arrangements. This is why I always draw up a proposal depending on the nature, the duration and the volume of the assignment.

     

    Feel free to contact me for any other question.
