If you have a personal or professional translation project on the horizon, working with a qualified and reliable language translation company is key. When seeking such a service, you might be curious to know: How does pricing for a translation work, and what factors play a role in determining cost? The experts at ABS Translations are here to offer some insight into how we generate accurate price estimates for document translations projects of all sorts.
Pricing a Translation Project: What to Know
Drawing on over 20 years of experience, our language translation company takes pride in offering fair, competitive pricing, prompt delivery and dependable work. Here are a few important things to keep in mind when it comes to obtaining a price quote for your translation project:
- Number of words is often the standard factor used to generate document translation pricing. However, the amount of time & effort it takes to complete the project also matters. For instance, a submitted source document that is blurry or otherwise difficult to read will require extra time to decipher prior to translation, and thus come with a higher price quote. The same is true when a special layout or formatting is requested.
- The type of document & the expertise needed to successfully translate it will also influence the price. For example, translating legal content requires industry-specific knowledge and is likely to be more complex than translating something more straightforward, such as a birth certificate. Thus, it is possible to receive a higher price quote for a shorter document, depending on content.
- A project may require additional formatting and design. Consider that when translating marketing materials or other formatted documents, paragraph length and other components may vary between versions. For example, a document translated from English to Hebrew will need to be reformatted to read right to left. ABS has a multimedia team that is trained in foreign layout to ensure that the final translated document looks as good as the original and carries the intended meaning.
As you can see, there are numerous factors which may affect pricing for your particular translation. To receive the most precise estimate, you’ll want to provide as many details as possible about your project.
