How to book

Three easy steps to complete your translation project.

Book a free consultation

Read the PDF on how to prepare your project brief, email me your German source text, and schedule a call.

Approve the brief & quotation

After our call I will send you a summary of the brief and a quotation for you to approve.

Receive your translation

Once approved, I will start work on the translation. You may need to answer a few questions as work progresses. You will receive your completed translation before the agreed deadline.

What if I don’t book?

You could use a free machine translation tool to produce an instant text. After all, the results appear convincingly fluent.

But there’s a reason why you probably did not ask Chat GPT to write your German content, so expecting the same technology to produce your translated content comes with the same risks.

Neural machine translation tools, such as Google Translate or Microsoft Translator, can introduce errors, omissions, and hallucinations into your text and could result in the meaning being lost. This could lead to reader indifference, confusion, or misunderstandings.

Although machine translation may be handy to use personally, relying on it to produce published texts, where you are responsible for the contents, is a risky business.

Frequently asked questions

What format will I receive my translation in?2024-05-20T18:02:41+01:00

Your translation will usually be formatted to be the same as the original document provided, unless agreed otherwise.

How much does a translation cost?2024-05-20T17:35:17+01:00

The cost of your translation will depend upon the length and complexity of the text and the estimated time it will take to produce.

If the text is easy to read, and sent in an easily editable format, such as Microsoft Word, it helps to avoid additional formatting, editing and research costs.

Once we have discussed the project I will send a quotation for you to approve before starting work.
