 Translating Your Project - Turnaround Time & Prices

Turnaround & Prices Quality Procedure

Turnaround Time

Turnaround time depends on the number of words and style of language (e.g., how much technical language or industry jargon). Our average translation speed is 3500 - 5000 words per day.

Here are some guidelines for translation of different sizes of documents:

Small Documents (2,000 to 5,000 words)

We generally translate 3,500 - 5,000 words a day. With every project large and small, we perform a quality check to ensure that the document is error-free and the format has been maintained. Therefore, you can reasonably expect 5,000 words to be completed in 48 hours. The earlier we receive your document, the better we can serve you. Rushing is the worst enemy of quality, which is our main concern.

Medium-Size Documents (5,000 to 15,000 words)

Should you require a short deadline, documents ranging from 5,000 to 15,000 words will likely need to be handled by several translators, otherwise a single translator will perform the job. Two to three additional days may be necessary for verification. It is reasonable to expect the translation of a 15,000-word document within 4 or 5 business days.

Large Documents (10,000 words or beyond)

If it is a large translation project, to ensure consistency, we try to keep the translation team to a maximum of three or four professionals.We can complete large translation projects by working in teams. In such a scenario, each translator is assigned an additional task: project management, building a bilingual glossary, or some other aspect of your job. This comprehensive approach and close collaboration enable us to deliver superior results.

Our Fees

We are able to offer very competitive rates because there is no commission to pay to a generic translation agency that translates "all languages and all subjects" through subcontractors. Our cost and turnaround estimates are accurate and binding. Pricing for our services is usually quoted by the word, but sometime at an hourly rate, depending on the nature of the assignment. Should it be your preference, we can also provide a firm price quote for your project.

Translation Rates for Chinese Translations

Our rates range from US $0.18 to US $0.22 per original word, according to the following factors:

Specificity of the Text – if a translator has to perform a lot of research, the translation logically takes more time. Total word count.

  Requested Deadline – if we have to work overnight or during weekends, there is a 30% increase over the basic rate.

As is evident, a number of factors influence the price of a translation. That is the reason that we ask you to send us all files that require translation as soon as possible, so that we can provide you with an exact quote, based on all the factors mentioned above.
