Michal Cinciala - Freelance Translator and Interpreter


My primary language pairs are English to Czech and German to Czech. In addition, I support translations between major languages (English, German, Japanese) and Central and East European languages (Czech, Slovak, Polish, Russian, etc.).

I process files created in specialized DTP software, such as FrameMaker, QuarkXPress, InDesign, and translate them using the translation memory technology without any intermediate processing steps (via Microsoft Word) that are common for non-CAT translation projects.

My primary concern is quality. Each project is checked carefully prior to delivery to the final customer.

I utilize software products and file formats common in the translation industry. I also work with special translation tools. Software-based file format conversions (without any additional modifications) are free. Manual conversions, such as high-quality PDF-to-DOC conversions, are charged based on the complexity level. I cooperate with my customers on the development of proprietary formats.

I offer translation services at highly competitive prices. Despite I concentrate on quality rather than quantity, my customers still enjoy favorable rates. If a customer chooses the Translation Memory service (Trados, SDLX, etc.), I provide large (up to 70%) discounts for repeating and previously translated text already saved in the translation memory (click here for detailed information on Translation Memory technology). Bulk discounts are available for large projects.

Express orders, hard copy processing, or very complex or specialty translations may be subject to surcharges. Complementary services, such as graphic processing, format conversion (e.g. professional PDF-to-DOC conversion) are billed separately based on a specific inquiry.

I quote prices for specific inquiries/projects. Generally, the prices start €0.06 per word of source language (€0.09 per source word for Japanese).
