The translation process


First translation

Finally, I read the translation directly, as if I were the document recipient, to make sure the text reads natural and that the layout looks nice.


I perform the initial conversion of the text into the target language.


Revision of content

I check the translation carefully, comparing each sentence against the source text to avoid any omissions or substantial errors.



How much does a translation cost?

The estimated cost of a translation can be usually calculated based on the number of words of the source document; however, I take into account the complexity of the document content and format. For example, if the document is uneditable, my services will probably be more expensive.

What about confidentiality?

In this industry all documents are confidential. I am used to signing confidentiality agreements for my clients. My professional signature is supported by the Translators Association of Buenos Aires, in which I am registered as a translation professional.

How long will it take to finish the translation?

As a reference, it takes me about one working day per 2,000 to 2,500 words to complete a translation. Once we agree on a deadline, I will always respect it.
