What is different when translating a book?

Test translation

I translate 10 pages (approximately 2500 words) of your book for free, to let you decide if you like my work or not and if you want to go on working with me on your book translation.

 

Time off after revision

When working on a book, I take some time off after the revision. This allows me to get back to the proofreading with fresh eyes. The time off depends on the length of your book.

 

You get a rebate

The first fifty thousand words are charged the regular price, words over that limit are charged 20% less.

 

Payment policy

For literary translation, one third of the total has to be paid once you validate the test translation, one third when I deliver the finished translation, and one third thirty days after invoice date.

 

Blog collaborations

I have gathered a group of 14 influencial literary blogers to whom I can send the translation of the book for an honest review.
