Pinktree Collective will evaluate your project’s special requirements and deadlines, then estimate the cost of the work. Once this is agreed, we will assign the project to the best-suited consultant, translator and/or editor. The finished translation is then proofread by another native speaker.
Pinktree Collective understands that every piece of writing will have its own tone and purpose, whether it’s a tightly structured proposal or a poetic text in the artist’s own voice. All our translators are native speakers of the target language and they bring their extensive experience in many related fields across the fine art sector to their work.
Our consultants offer expert advice to help you shape projects and find the best editorial solution for your individual needs.
We welcome academic texts at all levels to translate, edit and proofread, including MA and PhD theses. Please note that we will not generate original material or ghost-write academic assignments. Authors are asked to supply full citations.
We do, however, accept writing commissions under our own individual or collective names. (Fees on request.)
Rest assured that Pinktree Collective treats all material submitted by clients for translation and editing as confidential intellectual property and will not disclose it to any outside party without the client’s written permission.
