Pricing




We use the "per word" system to establish translation prices. (The traditional "per page" system requires clarification of each translator's concept of what a "page" includes!)

We use a word processor counter to find the total number of words (including footnotes, etc.) and then multiply this total by the "per word" cost.







With the exception of computer-generated translations, all translations are completed and checked by our expert professional translators, utilizing topic-specific dictionaries.

(Computer-generated translations are NOT reviewed by our translators and are supplied with no guarantee of accuracy.)

Formats are maintained - unless a different format is requested.
(See special note regarding tabulated material.)




HOW TO COMPARE ESTIMATES:

To compare a "per word" estimate to a "per page" estimate, simply find how many words a typical page of the translation includes (usually between 150 and 250) and divide the cost by that number.

Example:   5,000 words...                  at .10  x word  =   $500
                      at 250 words x page    at $25 x page  =   $500
                      at 200 words x page    at $25 x page  =   $625
                      at 150 words x page    at $25 x page  =   $833


As can be seen, a fixed "per page" price can dramatically affect cost, depending on how the number of words per page is counted, whereas the "per word" cost remains constant.




HOW TO ESTIMATE TRANSLATION PRICES:

Use your word processor counter, (or average the word count of 5 typical pages and multiply by the total number of pages) to find the approximate number of words in the original and then multiply this total by the "per word" cost.




TABLES:

To speed completion of any given translation project, we recommend a "line-by-line" or "box-by-box" translation of all tabulated material, to later be re-formatted by you, the client.

Formatting tables to match the original layout will incur a surcharge of 10%, because of the extra time involved. We will endeavour to match each table as closely as possible to the original, although differences in word length and/or quantity may necessitate some minor changes.

NOTE: Tables include complete word translations and suggested abbreviations where space is limited.

TIP: If the tables include abbreviations, supply complete explanatory information because abbreviations that may be understood in your field are not always "standard" and therefore can delay completion of the translation.




EDITING:

We can help you with different types of editing and revision.

If your material is complete but in text form, we can suggest appropriate style options. Upon your acceptance of a style, we can format your text if required.

If your material is formatted, we can revise it prior to printing and suggest clarity corrections or improvements.

If it needs to be shortened due to publication size limitations, we can edit it or produce a précis, if that is all that available space permits.

Unlike Spanish, American English is direct and non-repetitive. Keeping this in mind when preparing or editing your original for translation will save time and money.

Please contact us for specific prices.




PAYMENT POLICY:

60% upon receipt of the original.
40% upon translation completion.
