How long does it take to translate a document?

The time needed to translate a document depends on the length and area of specialisation of your text. As a general rule, a translator can translate on average 2,000 works a day, but this does depend on each project, the language combination - Dutch, German or Russian - and its specific requirements.

What if I need a translation quicker than this?

Here at The Native Crowd, urgent requests are not a problem. As an experienced project manager, I can help you out. Simply get in touch on 0044 7780 333402 and we can chat through all available options.

Can I get a free quote without having the document to be translated?

Yes. Simply let me know which language you require, the word count and an idea of the industry. Please contact me on 0044 7780 333402 to find out more.

Which languages do you translate to and from?

I translate from Dutch, German and Russian in English (UK or US).

What if I need to translate from a different language?

Give me a call on 0044 7780 333402 or send me an email at and let me know your requirements. I work with a trusted pool of translators and will be happy to provide you with a quote for your specific translation requirements.

How much does a translation cost?

Translations are normally priced per-word, based on the number of words in the document to be translated. That per-word rate can vary depending on a number of factors, such as language (Russian, German or Dutch into English), length of the translation, formatting, subject area, and delivery date.

Can you demonstrate experience in the field?

The Native Crowd has experience across multiple sectors and industries. You can find evidence of this on the About Me page and by looking at my Testimonials section.

Can you offer independent proofreading services?

Yes. I can offer a proofreading certificate for your translation project upon request. I can also offer an independent proofreading service for each translation project you require upon request. I use a second native speaker who has expert knowledge of the subject matter.

Where are you based?

I am based in the Lake District, in Cumbria in the North West of the UK. I offer my services both nationally and internationally. Key areas in the UK : Kendal, Lancaster, Stockport, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow.

I can't find the languages I'm looking for.

Over the last few years, I have built up a network of committed and qualified translation colleagues. I work with these fellow translators on larger projects and mutual areas of interest and can vouch for their ability and professionalism. If you're looking for a translator specialised in a different area or language, please let me know and I'll be happy to make an introduction.
