For me, translation is a wonderful blend of art and science, relying as much on the heart as it does on the mind. A good translator knows when to be literal and when to adapt the content to fit the language and culture of the target audience. My goal is always to provide a new text that conveys the same ideas as the original, but which can also stand alongside it as an independent document of the same quality or better.
I use proofreaders in order to deliver work that is free of errors and I will make as many revisions as necessary until the client is satisfied. Depending on the nature of the text, I can manage 2,000 - 3,000 words per day. I maintain regular communication with the client regarding the current status of the project and if it consists of multiple documents, I turn in each one as it is finished so that the client benefits from not having to wait until all the work is finished and I benefit from the opportunity to incorporate any feedback into the subsequent documents.
