My name is Christer Heljestrand and I am a freelance translator providing professional language services into my native language, Swedish. My main source languages are English and Spanish but I can l also do Norwegian and German. Translations from Swedish into Spanish by a native translator + revision. I don´t presume to be neither particularly fast nor very cheap but I´m extremely concerned about accuracy and quality and I always meet the deadlines. I translate meaning, not words. Experienced CAT tool user: memoQ, SDL Trados, XTM, Transit, Transifex, etc.

My standard rates
Translation: 0.10-0.12 € per word (depending on volume, type of text and deadline)
Proofreading: 0.03-0.04 € per word or 30.00 € per hour (apart of the above, also depending on the quality of the translation)
Minimum charge: 1 hour = 30.00 €

- Standard rates are for texts in Word. I may charge other rates for other formats (e.g. scanned documents in PDF).
- I need proper reference material (pictures, illustrations, links, etc.) do be able to deliver a good translation, it´s impossible to translate without context.
- The deadline influences the rate (words/day), so does work over weekends.
