Submit a quotation request by emailing us a pdf or editable electronic file (MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, etc.)
The document will be analyzed for content, format, complexity, and pre-existing translations.
A quote is prepared by determining the amount of research involved and the size of the document. The analysis also considers previously translated documents to re-use pre-existing translations. Updates to documents do not require the translation of the whole document, and only the new and modified text is invoiced. For a rough estimate, calculate 23¢ per word based on the standard word count. The quote will include a delivery date based on volume and your requirements.
We translate after you agree to proceed, and we contact you immediately if we have questions or issues via e-mail.
The completed translation enters into two stages of proofreading and editing after which it is then passed to a second linguist to review.
The finished file is returned to you in the format requested. If the translation is destined to be integrated into a specific design, the file is returned as a bilingual file to ensure the designer can easily match the translation to the original language.
