much will it cost?
There is no single price for all. Cost usually depends on these main factors:
- Total word count
- Subject matter
- Turnaround time desired
Other factors that may influence price include special needs you may have, such as format delivery, typesetting, captioning -- anything that may require significant work time besides the actual translation. A translator or provider will usually need at least the above information to offer you a quote. You are welcome to contact us for a quote.
As with most services and products, you get what you pay for. We suggest you request quotes from 3 providers. Make sure you give each the same detailed information about your project: desired language/s, total source word count, subject matter description, turnaround time desired. When comparing bids, don't just look at the price. Compare the quality of service you get for each price. For this, you need information on the actual translators' and project managers' experience and qualifications.
When choosing a translation provider, calculate
how much you have spent developing the product or service you want to promote
you cannot afford a professional translation, perhaps
you are not ready for the
international market yet.
The added value that a translation company offers
is translator selection,
project management, quality control, file conversions,
presentation of multilingual projects, and much more. While this
service has a price tag, it can
save you hours of work.
