French – English translation per 1,000 words:
€60 – 80              (0.06 – 0.08 per word)

The above rates are given as a guideline only and each will be assessed project on the usual factors: volume, subject matter, source format, delivery deadlines … Please email or call for an accurate quotation for your project. I am usually happy to do a short test translation (3 – 400 words) for a new agency or client.

I can also work  directly into HTML (without destroying your code!) using Adobe DreamWeaver and typeset documents in Adobe InDesign. I use SDL/Trados and MemoQ and can work with Translation Memory and Glossaries.
