I translate from French into English.  I feel an effective translation can only be carried out from a source language into a NATIVE language.


I charge GB£0.06 per source word, or €0.07 per source word, or US$0.09 per source word.  I can also quote on specific projects you may have.


I, David Richardson, would like to introduce you to my company, D R Language Services.  I run a globally active translation business, based in Portsmouth, UK.  I specialise purely in translations from French into English.  


D R Language Services was founded in 2012.  The sole purpose of the business is to provide accurate, high quality translations from French into English, delivered in a timely manner, never missing important deadlines.


Please refer to my profile,  I have over 30 positive comments from many happy clients.


To give you a bit of background on me, I graduated back in 2002 with a BA (Hons) in European Studies with French and German. Translation was an element of the course in my final year. My degree involved a year abroad, part of which I spent a semester in Rennes, France, where my level of French rocketed. 


My goal is to allow my true passion for the French language to flourish through the medium of my work.  I am willing to undertake a test translation for all new clients I work with, just so they can see the quality of my work, thus proving my worth to them. 


My areas of expertise are: Business / Commerce (general), Tourism & Travel, General / Conversation / Greetings / Letters, Management, Human Resources, Marketing / Market Research, Patents and Science.


I translate from the source language of French, into the target language of English (my mother tongue).  After completing a test translation for new clients, my rate is GB£0.06 per source word, that is GB£60.00 per 1000 source words.  For clients dealing in euros, my rate is €0.07 per source word (i.e. €70.00 per 1000 source words). For clients dealing in US dollars, my rate is US$0.09 per source word (i.e. US$90.00 per 1000 source words).  Any questions about my services, please send an email
to, otherwise call me on my mobile (+44 (0) 7879 613103) or landline (+44 (0) 2392 363784).
