I am a freelancer translator since 2003, and I am willing to do the job.

very excited to work here.

I understand. OK, I will lookout for your mails in my spam bucket. I will

also let my mailer know that yours is not a spam address. I hope that

helps. So, if you need any help, I will be leaving for Mexico on

Wednesday, 04 of March. I will be there until the 31st of March. I will

probably be back on email on the 5th of March.


good luck with your project,


Good idea. Yes, I have had dealings with Indian companies in the

past--both in Mexico and in the US. It is a well-known company, I will

know it. I have been to India and I have worked with many Indian software

engineers. I have also outsourced work to Indian companies, so if they are

anywhere on the radar, I will know them. The only problem will be with

price; they tend to be on the cheap side because they can get very good

resources for very little money in India.


OK, incidental expenses are usually paid by the client. Those are for

taxis, subway tickets, lunch, etc. So, if that is a problem, you can say

this to your client: my price is $100 usd per day, plus 20 USD per day for

incidental expenses. If I am required to work on a weekend, a 20% charge

is added.




Am writing re: your post on ProZ.

- translations ^0,07 (seven eurocents)per word, could vary depending on

the level of technical terminology. - interpreting for a long term job

like this ^350/day (8 hours)dependng on the circumstances.


- I am based in Lisbon (Portugal) but for a long term interpreting job,

could easily relocate temporarily.


- I have 12 years of experience and have worked a lot with Brazilians,

including ministerial level meetings and one presidential visit. I am

originally from India so if this involves working with Indian IT

technicians, can handle Indian accents and culture too.


- I do not specialise in IT, I have a history and arts background but have

worked in several fields, including over a year translating technical

engineering documents with Piaggio S.p.A (Italy).


- I am a \"people person\" and quickly integrate into teams / corporate



- I can send you a detailed CV if and when required.


- I am sending this e-mail simply because it\'s unusual to see a job like

this posted, actual details and availability would need to be worked out

subsequently (especially since I am already pretty much booked for March).

This is just so you have some basic information to formulate your initial

bid. If you can factor in travel and accommodation as well, great.


Good luck with the bid, whether or not we work together. If you require

any further information from me please e-mail me, or my phone number is:
