Sworn translations and other language services

My offer includes professional translations from English and Italian into my native language (German) and translations from German and Italian into English. These can also be certified for official use in public agencies and courts. Ever since 2011 I have provided sworn translation of legal documents including university degrees, professional qualifications, registration documents (birth/ death/ marriage certificates etc.) as well as medical or insurance documents. Dual reviews with qualified native speakers for editing and proofreading are also available on request. I also offer content revisions, proofreading and editing of German texts and translations.

Pricing and orders

Content-related revisions (including proofreading and summaries) and transcription work are usually charged by the hour. Rates for translations are determined according to the volume (i.e. the number of words or standard lines), the complexity of the text and the deadline. My rates are based on the German Remuneration Act for Courts and Experts (JVEG). Certified translations are provided starting at € 1.55 per standard line (55 keystrokes) plus material charges, a € 5.00 stamp fee and the charges for registered mail. The German VAT (19%) is not charged, as I work as individual small entrepreneur. The minimum order value is € 25.00. To receive a non-binding quotation, please contact me by email, ideally including the text to be translated and describing the purpose of the translation, stylistic requirements and other relevant information such as reference resources available.

Ordering and professional network

After any relevant questions are resolved, I will provide you with an appropriate non-binding quotation by e-mail. After the offer has been accepted, you will be given a confirmation and work will begin. Please note that my General Terms and Conditions allow me to involve qualified professional colleagues if the specified deadline requires such capacities. I am also pleased to provide you with suitable recommendations from my professional network for other language combinations. If you have questions or a particular request, contact me for assistance.
