Fair calculations – because your money doesn’t grow on trees either

When calculating the price of your translation – whether from English or Spanish – I base it on the number of words found in the original text. Simply send me your document and I will be pleased to send you a detailed quote. My calculations are precise and down to the cent. This way you know exactly what to expect. There are never hidden costs or nasty surprises.

Guaranteed confidentiality!

As a member of the BDÜ (German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators), your texts are in good hands with me. It also goes without saying that they will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and discretion. Upon your request, I will be happy to send you a non-disclosure agreement in advance.

How much will my translation cost?

You will always receive an honest customized quote from me. However, perhaps you wish to get a rough estimate of how much it will cost and the amount of time I would need to complete your translation job? In that case the following information will serve as a guideline.

PRICE PER WORD

Please count the words in your original text. I charge € 0.15 per word. For texts that require a great deal of research, we will agree on a set research fee in advance. You want to know exactly what your translation will cost? Please send me your text, and I will provide you with a detailed quote.

FILE FORMAT

It is most cost efficient if you supply the text as a Microsoft Word document. If you send me PowerPoint files or PDFs, please add a 10 % surcharge.

WORKING HOURS

The prices indicated apply during normal working hours. In urgent cases, it may be possible for me to complete your translation outside of normal business hours, on weekends and holidays. This will involve a 50 % surcharge.

DELIVERY TIMES

The length of your text determines the amount of time necessary for completion. I can translate approximately 2000 words per day. However, before you calculate a possible delivery date, please enquire about availability first.
