Translation

Reach your target market in their mother tongue by having your content translated. I specialise in marketing translations for e-commerce brands in fashion and interior design and am here to support you with the following types of content:

website copy

blog posts

newsletters

social media content

product descriptions

Transcreation

With transcreation (translation + recreation), you get the best of both worlds: translation and copywriting. In this process, your content is re-written in the other language to emotionally and culturally resonate with your target audience. Transcreation is best suited for creative marketing materials, such as slogans and claims. This way, your core message won't get lost, and the end product will have a much more local and authentic flavour.

LinkedIn Services

I built my online-based business mostly through LinkedIn – and you can, too!

Over the past 4+ years, I've learned so much about this professional social networking platform and how to best use it to market my services. Eventually, other businesses (fellow freelancers and big corporations alike) reached out to me for advice and content support.

Here's how I can help you get the most out of your LinkedIn efforts:

Profile Audit

Based on your business goals, I'll go through the main elements of your LinkedIn profile and make suggestions of what should be updated and why.

1:1 Content Training

If you're either new to posting on LinkedIn or have been feeling uninspired, you'll benefit from my 1:1 LinkedIn content training. We'll meet for about 1 hour on Zoom to discuss your content roadblocks, brainstorm new ideas and create a content plan. This can either be a one-off session or a series of sessions until you feel confident in what you're posting on LinkedIn.

Done-for-you Content Writing

If you're in the wider e-commerce or language industry or work in fashion or interior design, I can support you by researching and writing LinkedIn posts for you. Depending on your needs, this can be a long-term collaboration with 1-3 posts per week. Each post includes an attention-grabbing opener, value-packed body text, 3 relevant hashtags and a call to action to engage with your audience as effectively as possible.

WORKFLOW

Here you'll find my 5-step translation and transcreation work process: 

1. Get in touch

 

At the beginning of any translation or transcreation project, I'll ask you to email me your source

(i.e. original) content. Accepted formats include Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel as well as Adobe PDF and InDesign. You'll also provide a project brief. For details on what to include in your brief, please refer to my free guide. If this is your first time working with me, you might want to jump on a quick call, so we can get to know each other!

2. Wait for confirmation

 

As soon as I've had a look at your requirements, I'll be in touch to confirm the project deadline, rate and any other specifics. If this is our first project, I'll also ask you to sign my Terms of Business as a legal basis for our collaboration.

3. Leave it to me

Now's the time for you to lean back while I work on your language project using my expertise, industry knowledge and translation software.

In case there's anything to clarify, I'll get in touch with you directly via email.

4. Finishing touches

 

I always edit my translations. This also includes reading them out loud to ensure easy readability and 'snappiness'. For extra quality assurance, I'll check with you whether someone on your team can do a final review of the translated content. If you like, I can also arrange for a second linguist to proofread the translation for you.

5. Time to shine

 

At this stage, the translation sounds smooth, natural and in line with your intended tone of voice. In short: it's ready for your target audience to enjoy! You'll receive the translation in the same format in which you sent it to me. This is when I encourage you to share any final amendment requests and feedback.

When you're happy, I'm happy.

RATES – FAQs

Here's where you'll find some quick answers to frequently asked questions to guide you in your decision-making process. I value your time just as much as mine and am always looking for smooth and efficient business partnerships without any unpleasant surprises.

Do you charge per word, hour or project?

I usually charge on a project basis once we've agreed on all specifications. With my retainer clients, I have a guaranteed number of hours of work each week or month. My hourly rate starts at €55 across all services. If requested, I attach a time tracking sheet along with my invoice upon billing.

What can I roughly get for one hour of your work time?

For translation work, one hour usually covers around 300 words, including quality assurance, though this always depends on the project at hand.

 

For transcreation work, it's much more difficult to say because of how creative and non-straightforward the process is. An hour will very likely get you a great slogan transcreation, for example, but you can't and shouldn't rush the process.

For my LinkedIn services, a rough time allocation could look like this:

  • straightforward profile audit: 30 mins.

  • 1:1 content training: 1 hour

  • done-for-you content writing: 45 mins. - 1 hour per post

When is payment due and how do I pay?

If we've never worked together before, I'll ask for 50% of the project rate up front as a deposit and the remaining 50% upon submitting the project. The same applies to large-value projects (< €500) unless we already have a contract or retainer option in place. I'll invoice you via email at the end of the month. My payment terms are 30 days from the invoice date. You can pay via bank transfer. Payment is accepted in euros, pound sterling and US dollars.

Do you have any more questions about my services, workflow or rates that I haven't covered on this page?

Get in touch – I look forward to hearing from you!
