How to charge by Translation Company

It is a wise choice to satisfy needs as well as save money.

What are the main requirements for stable and reliable translation quality?

  • Do the junior translators have a bachelor degree in foreign language major with more than 4 years of experience?
  • Is there a proofreading process? Are proofreaders are qualified?
  • Are project managers skilled and experienced nough to handle business properly?
  • Translation speed should be controlled within 2500 Words / person / 8 hours.
  • Are there professional consultants to receive instructions from customers?
  • Whether to create a client database to ensure language unity for the next delegation?
  • Is there professional translation memory software and professional management software?
  • Does the company have a long-term and effective human resources recruitment policy and retention?

Factors affecting the charge by the translation company?

  • Students or interns:20%~60% discount
  • For translation in professional fields only charge an additional $0.005/Word
  • For proofreading by native or expert translators:about 2 times base price
  • Charge for urgent documents:30%~100% additional charge
  • Urgent documents:time is important for high-quality work. Overnight work or assigning documents to more than one translator are usual solutions for urgent documents, and this may lead to a lack of language unity or negligence caused by fatigue. So we suggest you not expedite documents if possible.
  • Student interpreter escort:20%~50% discount
  • More than 8 years of professional interpreting experience in the field:20%~100% additional charge
  • Simultaneous interpreters for common consecutive interpretation:50% additional charge
