Romanian-English translations, UK
Camelia Popescu Dip Trans IoLET MCIL
I am Camelia Popescu. I provide Romanian-English translations and other language-related services. Although a native Romanian, I have been living and working in the UK since 2003.
I enjoy the challenges of a technical document as much as those of literary translations. As quality is my number one priority, I am meticulous in my work.
I supply Romanian-English certified translation services for UK use.
My keen interest in the English language developed during the first couple of years of foreign language tuition at secondary school. The two-hour weekly classes proved insufficient to satisfy my need for absorbing and perfecting my knowledge. So I started studying English on my own, using all tools available to me. I was so enthusiastic I spent half of my very first salary on a 75,000-entry English-Romanian-English dictionary.
I sat the Diploma in Translation examination provided by the Chartered Institute of Linguists in 2007, passing all three units and achieving a distinction in Literature. Due to my inquisitive nature and my need to be good at what I do, I continually expand my professional horizons.
Membership of professional bodies
I joined the Society of Authors in 2016.
Independent Romanian-English translation services
- Business and commercial documents, including general correspondence, marketing texts (websites, brochures, trade fair documentation);
- Financial texts;
- Legal documents (contracts; police clearance certificates, birth, marriage and divorce certificates etc);
- Social services documents;
- Technical documents (tools, machinery).
As English is not my first language, my Romanian to English translations will be checked/proofread by a senior or a native English fellow translator.
Romanian-English certified and notarised translation services
Certified translations for the use of UK authorities/companies
I provide self-certified Romanian-English translations of documents for use within the UK.
If required, a UK notary public will notarise the translated document.
Certified translations for use in Romania
Please read up on the rules on notarised translations for use by Romanian authorities on our Romanian certification rules page.
Please always check with the organisation that has requested the translation of your documents as to which type of certification they prefer.
Romanian-English translation rates
My Romanian-English translation rates range from £75 to £110 per 1,000 words or source language. Prices vary so much, because translation rates greatly depend on text and/or document layout, complexity of the language used, volume and deadline or urgency.
My minimum charge for short documents is £25 to £35 for up to 300 words. However, for very short texts the rate may be negotiable (sight of the document in question required).
Please note that it is accepted industry practice to only give out a quote after having had sight of the text for translation. This is necessary because the translator needs to check the text for a number of factors that influence the applicable translation rate. These include the volume of words, the subject, complexity, layout and formatting. Your envisaged deadline will also be taken into account before quoting a price.
I am not VAT registered, so the price quoted will be the price invoiced.
Please visit the Contact me page to find out how to send me your Romanian-English translation project. Feel free to phone me for an initial discussion of your specific translation requirements.
I accept payment by bank transfer, PayPal or TransferWise. My payment terms will be stated on the invoice.
