Translation rates are generally based on the source word count (plus VAT or other taxes, if applicable). They vary according to the following factors: level of specialization (technical vs non-technical), file format (PDF, scanned, or handwritten documents can take extra time and effort to process), formatting (tables and figures can be labor-intensive), turnaround time, weekend or holiday work, and other non-standard services.

Straight text is generally billed based on the source word count, and labor-intensive tasks such as formatting are typically charged at an hourly rate or at a flat fee. Minimum fee is also applied.

My Translation Output

My translation output is approximately 2,500-3,500 finished words a day, generally depending on the subject and the amount of research required.

I look forward to being of service to you.
