Confidential Text Drafting, Editing & Translation Service

Our services

DraftingCraft provides the following specialist services that offer more than just translation:

  • Enhanced translation makes sure that your target group truly comprehends the message you intend to convey instead of a literal translation that continues reflecting the mindset of the input language rather than playing to the mindset of the output language.

  • Text drafting directly in the target language. Thus, you not only save valuable time and money but you also allow us to embellish the finished product with our expertise in diplomacy, tact, ready wit, mitigation, mediation, ethical considerations, advocacy of your viewpoint etc. We can draft a wide range of text types, such as
  • business correspondence
  • private correspondence 
  • letters of condolence 
  • letters of complaint
  • responses to complaints
  • articles in journals and periodicals
  • advertisments
  • personal legacies
  • personalised patient’s testaments
  • etc.
  • Enhanced and editing of existing texts that will highlight the true worth of your own ideas by bringing in another set of eyes and brains.

This is how it works

  1. Contact us via E-Mail and let us know which of our services you are interested in.
  2. Ideally you will provide us with some input (text, goal, context) and choose the output language. Your input is treated strictly confidentially from the first exchange of messages and remains so regardless of whether you accept our quoted offer. 
  3. Based on the input we will make an estimate and submit an offer to you.
  4. If you are satisfied with the quoted amount, you will be asked to make an on-account payment 10% to 50% of the fee depending on the estimated workload.
  5. We provide you with a first draft.
  6. You evaluate if the first version can be maintained or needs to be modified for your needs. 
  7. We make adjustments and amendments where required.
  8. Once you are satisfied with the draft, you pay the remainder of our fee.

Fee structure

Fees vary depending on the complexity and time estimated for completion. An individual offer will be made. To give you a rough idea. You might pay as little as 10 Euros for a short e-mail translation, 20 Euros for a full page drafted letter, 50 Euros for a 10 page correction, or 2500 Euros for a complete book revision.
