TRANSLATIONS

Translated documents include graphics, text on images and Power Point presentations. Please note that I only accept jobs after a final price quotation that I send has been approved by the client, so even if you can calculate how much a translation will cost you on the basis of the price per word, that doesn't mean that I will commit to doing your translation straight away. You first need to approve my quotation, which will include:
 

- the final price
- delivery time and method
- payment terms

 

 

CONSECUTIVE INTERPRETING

For obvious reasons, I can only do interpretation jobs in person in Milan. Elsewhere, the job is done through a Conference Call, via Skype or similar Service. Depending on the subject of the job, a more or less lengthy conversation with the hosted person will be necessary beforehand, to prepare for the actual conference. Note that I don't do Simultaneous Interpretation, which is a different specialty.

TEXT EDITING AND REVISION
 

You wrote that text yourself in spanish/italian, but it doesn't look quite good? No problem, I'll give it that missing professional touch for you.

The same rules that apply to Translations are valid for Text Editing and Revision Jobs.

SPANISH AND ITALIAN LESSONS ONLINE (BASIC, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED LEVELS)

These can include grammar, reading, writing and/or conversation, and are given from my office in Milan, Italy through Skype or a web conference service (with or without video, as the client prefers). The first lesson is a free 30 minute interview which will help me assess your level of proficiency in the selected language, and that, together with your own expectations, will serve us to plan a course strategy and decide the number and contents of the lessons. The lessons can be one or one and a half hours long.

All payments are made through PayPal. When the translation is completed, togeher with the finished job (or in the term indicated in the quotation) I will send you my receipt or invoice and a Paypal payment request.

The payment terms can be: anticipated (for some new clients), upon delivery (for habitual clients) or in two or more installments (in exceptional cases).

HOW TO ASK FOR A PRICE QUOTATION

To ask me for a price quotation for a translation you need to send me the following information to the following email:
 

   

 

- Your name, company, email and postal address
- The subject matter of the translation
- Any special requirements that you might have
- The full document to be translated (preferably) or only one typical page of the document but with the indication of how many pages the document has. In the latter case, after the approval of an initial quotation and reception of the full document, I will adjust the price to match the real total number of words and send you a new quotation with the final price.
