Translation Fees: What Determines the Cost?

Our translation fees are competitively priced and reflect the level of expertise and work involved in each project. We take several factors into account, such as the source and target languages, complexity of the text, the level of expertise required, and turnaround time. These factors can significantly affect translation prices, making every project unique in terms of cost.

Breaking Down the Translation Cost

While there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer to how much a translation costs, we endeavor to provide our clients with a clear and detailed estimate. The primary determinant of the translation expense is the word count of the source document. We charge per source word, meaning you pay for the number of words in the original document rather than the translated one.

In addition to word count, the document translation cost also accounts for the complexity of the subject matter and the language pair involved. For instance, a technical document with industry-specific jargon will cost more to translate than a general text document.

Translation Services Price & Rates in GBP, EUR, and USD per source word
