Before, moving to Montreal in 2013, I lived over half my life in France, translating into my mother tongue, English.
Some of my recent translation projects include a series of artist biographies, sponsorship proposals, fundraising appeals for the Canadian Red Cross and the Liberal Party of Canada, and daily news segments and lifestyle pieces for Paris based international news and current affairs television channel France 24.
I work on a price per word basis, which ranges from 0,14 $ CAD à 0,28 $ CAD per word, depending on :
The source : is it a web page, a word document, an audio file, a video, do we need to transcribe the files … ?
The subject matter : how much technical language or industry jargon is there … ?
The turnaround times : do you need your document within the next 2 hours, 10 hours, over the weekend, within the next two weeks …?
