The rate for a translation depends on its size, degree of difficulty and required delivery time. Please send the text that needs to be translated using the form below through our secure website and we will send you a no-obligation quote. Additionally, you can request a free trial translation of 200 words, so that you can decide beforehand whether we provide the quality that you’re looking for.
To be able to guarantee good quality, our translators tackle 1000 to 1500 words per day for specialist texts. If the texts are of a more general nature, the number of words is around 1500 to 2000 per day per translator. This number also depends on the quality of the text to be translated and our freelancers’ schedule. It goes without saying that we would like to assign the right translator to your text. In our quote we will clearly specify on which date and at what time you can expect your translation. And of course we will keep to your deadline.
Degree of Difficulty
Normally, the rate for a general translation is lower than that for e.g. a legal translation, a technical translation or a medical translation. This has everything to do with the text’s degree of difficulty. A legal translation is more complicated, and interspersed with long sentences and specialist jargon. The translation of a general text, for commercial purposes for example, often has shorter sentences, is easier to read and must therefore be translated into an attractively written text. Naturally, any topic requires the correct terminology, but in the context of a more general text, the translator has more poetic freedom.
The delivery time depends on the length of your text, the availability of our freelancers and your desired delivery time. Do you want your text* to be translated within 24 hours? Depending on the text’s length and its degree of difficulty, we charge a 25% urgent rate on top of our going rate. For urgent requests we will get back to you within 2 hours of you submitting your request.
