English to Italian Translationsfrom the heart of Scotland
Potential Italian clients are out there, waiting to read about your great ideas and products.
You just need to find someone you can trust to reach out to them.
Someone who will convey your message with as much care and attention as you would.
This is how I can help you:
I have translated in a variety of fields since 2005 and my specialisms are renewables, tourism and the environment. I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, as well as an Associate of the Associazione Italiana Traduttori e Interpreti.
I hold a Diploma in Public Service Interpreting and act as Italian examiner for the Chartered Institute of Linguists. TEFL qualified.
into Italian of more straightforward English texts, such as articles, technical brochures, blogs and surveys. Charged per number of words in the English document, so you know from the onset how much you will spend
of very creative texts, such as slogans and other promotional or advertising material. This type of translation is difficult to estimate and is normally either charged by the hour, or a fee may be negotiated in advance
of English or Italian videos or audio files. As a rule of thumb, each 10 mins of recorded material can take 60 – 90 mins to transcribe. Estimates will be based on the above parameters
of your existing material, previously translated by others into Italian, with recommendations, where required. Charged by the hour
for your multilingual projects, I can recommend translators working from Italian into English or in other language combinations, whose professionalism I can personally vouch for. This service is free
On average, I translate 1,600 words per day, though technical texts may require more time. To turn the initial estimate into a realistic quote I will need to see the complete files you want me to translate. If you accept my offer, I will ask you to sign a contract. I abide by the ITI Code of Conduct and apply their Terms and Conditions, to view them please click
If you do have company glossaries or any other reference material I will of course ask for them, to ensure that my work is consistent with your existing brand and style, as one word can have many translations. This is especially (but not exclusively) important for technical translations. I will still provide advice on terminology if required.
This is where I perform my magic, turning your phrases into perfectly crafted and localised equivalents for your Italian-speaking target readers. You may still hear from me during this phase, should I have any questions about the text.
I always make sure that the translation is delivered on time, but reasonable speed is not the same as haste. I check my work very thoroughly as part of our contract, before handing it over to you. I can also arrange for another linguist to proofread, if you wish, for an additional fee.
I apply a very transparent pricing system. The quote you receive at the start will be broken down to the finest detail to give you confidence and avoid surprises later. If the document is a straightforward MS Word, with no special formatting or extensive research required and with a normal delivery deadline, my base rate of £0.10/source (English) word (£100/1000 words) will apply. A minimum flat rate of £30 applies to short texts of up to 250 words with the same characteristics. Surcharges will be added for special formats, complex texts, urgent deadlines, etc. My hourly work is charged at £40/hour.
