Little tip: almost all translations are in Word. Save the Word file as html, upload it to a webpage, get google to translate it, click on View Source, save the resulting webpage as an html file on your computer, open that in Word, and Save As to a .doc file. The formatting should be perfect and matching. This is obviously only useful for files that have a lot of individual words or simple phrases that google translate can handle correctly. After that a proper proofread would be necessary, but this can save you a lot of time as opposed to translating from scratch.
Head Honcho at KENAX
After translating and managing translation projects for more than 20 years, I'm happy to teach others the ropes and move on to other interests. My greatest perk from this profession is that it has given me the freedom to work when and where I want, and eventually to loosen the straps and travel freely around the world.
