Dear clients, English & Russian content is what I translate and ... morecreate for 20 years. When you may need my services? Case #1 You've got a movie, audio, files, or a site with English / Russian words and want to make an English / Russian version. Your time is limited, there are many other things to do, and you want to be absolutely sure that contractor won't spoil the party. Case #2 You've already hired someone. But natives start to frown and look away whenever they see their formally acceptable translation. You wonder why. And decide to hire an independent localizer and psychologist to edit and polish this dull and wordy semi-product. Case #3 Your content relates to IT, technics, electronics, telecom, marketing, psychology or music. And you want someone with deep understanding of these topics to become your virtual assistant who processes your texts, Wordpress sites, and audios. A sworn night shift pro. A doublechecker. A troubleshooter. Whaterver... Now let's switch to why it is so. PRO CUSTOMERS Major IT and engineering companies, including Google, Microsoft, Dell, VMware and Burburry regularly send me their complex, wordy, and highly visible content. PRO MARKETING I graduated from Moscow State University's psychology faculty in 1997. Then I worked at Moscow Gestalt Institute and collaborated with COMCON-2, IPSOS, and Mart market research companies. That's why I always consider target group's perception and not only grammar rules. PRO QA Every customer likes when translators offer automatic QA and finalization services. Yes, I do it, too. For free. Customers also love saving on previously translated words and phrases. And they get what they want. 100% matches won't cost you a dime. PRO SOFTWARE VPN, Trados 2007-2014, Passolo, Idiom, Wordfast, MemoQ, ApSIC Xbench, Audacity, Camtasia, and MS terminology database PRO WORKSTATION Core i7 3000, 8 Gb RAM, fast SSD + a huge disk for backup Windows copy, pro sound card (Focusrite Saffire), pro IPS display PRO QUALIFICATION I may not publish my localization projects because of NDAs. But I can prove that I successfully completed a similar job, if any. Feel also free to offer a short unpaid test (< 300 words) or a more extensive paid one. PRO SPEED Estimated progress rates: up to 2,500 translated words per day up to 8,000 edited words per day Plan for 8 hours per day or less in case of hourly jobs. RATES AND DISCOUNTS Translation rate: 0.05 USD per source word Editing rate: 0.025 USD per source word Hourly jobs: 13 USD per hour Simple and large-scale (> 10,000 words) projects would cost you less (up to 0.04 USD per source word). In turn, time-consuming and rush jobs would be priced slightly higher (up to 0.06 USD per source word). Please, be aware that your repeated words (so called 100% repetitions) and my extra QA services (consistency, terminology, grammar, and format checks plus spellchecking) will always be free of charge. Never mind my current 72% job success rate. I don't know how bots calculate it, if my feedback rate is 4.92 out of 5 and all my translation jobs are top-rated (i. e. 5 stars). And I don't want to chase my Upwork clients just to improve it. Firstly, I appreciate their time. Secondly, I am usually involved in numerous non-Upwork jobs. Now I've got a surprise for those who managed to read through this long profile. It's a New Year's upbeat verse reposted from my Rul10n blog, which is meant for my English-speaking partners. My partner pool is full and cool. You choose Rul10n as a rule. Upwork brings joy, and to upkeep I never eat and hardly sleep. Let fools divide and boast of might. We are unite to merge and write. To write is right. To fight is wrong. A simple moral of this song. less
