1. HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE IN TRANSLATING AND INTERPRETING BUSINESS?
More than 10 years. My “plus” is that all those years I maintained my occupation as a business executive and legal adviser, thus improving my areas of expertise on a daily basis.

3. WHAT IS YOUR TRANSLATING PHILOSOPHY?
Excellence both regarding the form/format and the content.
4.WHAT IS THE TYPICAL TURN AROUND TIME?

DO YOU OFFER?
I can do all types of works relating to translation: proofreading, post-editing, localization, etc.
7.HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR AN INTERPRETATION ASSIGNMENT
Interpreting requires a good preparation: the topic, type of meeting, interpreting work (simultaneous or consecutive, whispering, etc.). It is important for the interpreters to have access to all material available prior to the event, so we can prepare, review the vocabulary, create a glossary, etc.

IF YES, HOW FAR AND WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
Yes, of course. I am available to travel worldwide, and my fees are according to the type of conferences, and the international practice.

I will not charge extra, but will certainly mention the mistakes to the client and help him improve the source text and/or the translated text.
