The cost of a translation is directly linked to:
- The length of the source text and
- The difficulty of the source text.
The cost of a translation is calculated based on the number of lines of source text as well as the subject matter involved.
A simple formula is used to calculate the length of a text. 1 line of text = 55 characters including spaces.
This way you can be sure that no matter how long the project takes or how often we need to consult with you over the course of the translation, the final cost will never end up being higher than the initial quote.
Proofreading, Editing and language training
For other services such as proofreading and language training an hourly rate is applied.
When it comes to proofreading and editing, we use a baseline of 100 lines of text per hour to estimate the total effort required for a specific text. Again, the final cost will never exceed the initial quote.
