I offer my services at competitive rates. Working directly with me eliminates the
cost of middle men. You can also communicate with me and discuss technical
matters of your subjects.

  • Translation
          I charge per English word. The number of English words in a doc (either
 an original or translated) is determined by the MS Word's word counting
 feature. The rate varies between $.10/word and $.20/word depending on
 contents and volume. I may agree with a fixed fee. I suggest you to send
  me a sample doc for a free quote.

  • Internet Search and Doc Review
          I charge at a hourly rate which varies between $35 and $45 depending
  on contents and time required. A fixed fee service is also available.

  • Interpretation
          I mainly serve in Southern California (Los Angles and Orange counties),
 but I may serve in other regions or overseas depending on specific
  conditions. The minimum charge is $250.00 for up to 4 hours. For
 additional hours, I charge $50.00/hr. The costs of transportation and
 accommodation may be asked. For teleconference, the rate is between
$40.00/hr and $50.00/hr.

There are no laws regulating language services in the U.S. Some language
service companies or translator organizations may issue “certification” which is
only valid within their capacity. I certify my translation as true and correct in all
respects within my abilities

I accept payment by cash, check or Paypal. Payment terms are net 30 days from
the date of an invoice.
