Very clear and well-paced session May 16

Thayenga delivers a very clear course, which fulfils all the goals set out right from the beginning. I enjoyed going through the common points and differentiating features of proofreading and editing, as well as the logics of pricing. It is always nice to hear someone sharing their experience and enthusiasm simply – and again, very clearly – about a potential source of confusion between translators and agencies.

proofreading vs editing May 28

To my mind, proofreading involves checking spelling and grammar. Full stop. This is not a service I provide. The editing services I offer involve checking spelling, grammar, syntax, use of correct terminology, understanding of underlying technology and rewrite (extensive rewrite is oftentimes required). I give the client two options: USD 0.03 per word (the charge for a translated text of 20,000 English words would be USD 600.00. Or USD 25.00 per hour. I have few takers (which is fine with me b...

I have few takers (which is fine with me because many BFAs use non-native speakers of English as translators and use accomplished translators in an attempt to cadge an accomplished translation for the price of "proofing". This also gives me more time for translating which is what brings the money in).Collapse
