Why would I pay for an expert translator if I can get translations as cheap as USD 0.05 a word?

As in any other profession, there are indeed many people out there offering these services. What you really need to do is separate the wheat from the chaff. Cheap service providers are interested in quantity above quality. They need to produce a lot in order to make a living, and cannot focus too much on excellence. That’s not what you’re going to find here. My goal is to provide a service that is tailored to your needs, delivered on time and on budget, standing out from the crowd and reflecting exactly how important you work is–and transmit that to your customers, peers or patients
