ABOUT FLORESCER

Jennifer Alexander is a native speaker of UK English, with over twenty years’ experience studying and working with languages. She first studied German and Danish as an undergraduate, and later came to Portuguese when living and working in Brazil (community work, teaching and translating).

She translates and interprets and writes because of a simple love of words: the endless possibilities they offer us, the power they contain, and the fun – and because of the way a different language lets us see the world through an alternative window.

Pricing

Many factors affect the price for a piece of translation: length, complexity and nature of the text, specialist terminology required, number of repetitions, formatting requirements and degree of urgency, to name a few.  Florescer will always provide a transparent, tailored quote on a per project basis. 

Interpreting jobs will be invoiced using an hourly or daily rate, likewise dependent on the complexity and nature of the work.
