I am one of the fastest translators in my language pair specializing in technical/IT translations.
I am currently ready to offer good discounts for large projects, 50,000 words or more. Due to very high working speed I can usually handle such projects all by myself, ensuring high consistency of terminology and making the review process much easier.
