Reviewing French, German and Luxembourgian translations (grammar, language related accents, language fluency, terminology)

My main sectors: text about angling, hunting, about aquariophilia, text about nature, history, marketing (all sectors), publicity campaigns (all sectors), about tourism, gastronomy, data text, novels, the translation of your website, ....

For works exceeding 10000 words, a deposit of 30% is asked at the beginning of work, balance to be paid within a week after submission.
For vast translation projects, other payment arrangements can be met (per week / per month)
At the end of the work, you will be send an invoice mentioning the deposit already paid.

Translation gets provided in PDF or in MS Word, as you wish.

After reception of your text, a word number check will be done and the proposed price may be adapted.
After your acceptance, the work will begin. You will get an estimation about the time to complete your work. No fixed date

There will be no invoice for deposit. The deposit will be visible in the final invoice. (As trading as a sole trader and not VAT registered, there will be no Vat number on the invoice)

I might request some more time for finishing a work due to the fact, that I am controlling all work manually making sure, there is no miss-interpretation in a text. Coming to French or German translation, specific attention is given to the language related accents and to a more complex grammar. Coming to the Luxembourgian language, officially a very young language, in reality a very old Celtic based language, with the modernization of the language, with the new grammar in place, not lot of translators are available for this language. For business matters, certainly worth an investment into translation, as Luxembourg is a small but very rich market. Certainly a great market when it comes to exclusive products.
