“How much will my translation cost?” is a frequently asked and legitimate question. Unfortunately, it is not possible to give a general answer to this.
The following factors affect the pricing:
– Certified or basic translation?
– Word count of the document
– Degree of difficulty and type of text
– Formatting effort
– Delivery time
Basically, a certified translation is more expensive than a basic translation. A surcharge of 20% applies to express translations.
In order to calculate the exact price, I use a certain software to determine the word count. For this purpose, I need a clearly legible scan (PDF) of the complete original document in advance.
Note: The easier it is to edit the document, the less formatting is required.
It is not necessary to provide original documents as long as a good quality scan is submitted to me.
