What I Do
TRANSLATING OLD GERMAN HANDWRITING INTO ENGLISH
E-mail me good-quality scans or photos of your documents and I will give you an estimate. Depending on the legibility, I usually decipher and translate 180-300 words per hour from German into English.
My hourly rate is £25.00 for UK clients, € 28,00 for European clients, $ 32.00 for US clients and CAD 40.00 for Canadian clients. I provide a transcript of the German with an English translation alongside, and I add explanatory notes and links where appropriate.
TRANSLATING HISTORICAL TEXTS FROM ENGLISH INTO GERMAN
E-mail me your text and I will give you an estimate. Documents may include articles from historical tabloids, broadsheets, local newspapers and magazines or chapters of books that are out-of-print.
My rates per word are £0.14 for UK clients, €0,15 for European clients, $0.17 for US clients and CAD 0.24 for Canadian clients. For texts with highly specialised terminology, rates increase by 50% to reflect the additional research time needed.
TRANSLATING LITERATURE FROM ENGLISH INTO GERMAN
As I am an author myself, I fully appreciate the pride you take in your work. I will not simply translate, but transcreate your work, reflecting your style and any cultural references that you refer to, with the highest standard of accuracy.
My rates are £16.00 per standard page; £13.00 per 1600 characters; £25.00 per hour; £0.13 per word for UK clients. For European clients, my rates are €18.00 pro Normseite; €15.00 per 1600 characters; €28.00 per hour; €0,14 per word.
Do you have old German documents, letters or diaries and would like to know what they say? I can transcribe Fraktur, Kurrent and Sütterlin and/or translate it into English. Just send me a scan of your document and I will give you a free price estimate depending on the legibility.
Do you want to translate a historical text, an article or a book from English into German? You have come to the right place, history and transcreation are my specialisms.
