      Accuracy and faithfullness compared with the original, syntax,
      grammar, spelling, appropriate use of idiomatic expressions. The
      translated text should read as though it has been written by a native
      speaker.

      The abiltity to see each sentence and each paragraph as a whole and
      rephrase the translation using, at times, a completely different
      syntax.

      Excellent understanding of source language and complete mastery of
      target language.
