per-word rates* for translation agencies
(2nd quarter 2020)
* estimated, non-binding prices
No assignment is too small, but the minimum price per project is EUR 40.00 (minimum fee per individual translation assignment).
There are two main factors that go into a quote for translation services:
- text volume
The translation cost is based on the number of words in the source text, i.e. the original text to be translated.*
- urgency of the translation
When scheduling my upcoming workload, I take into account an average output of about 1250–1500 words per day.
—up to 1250 words per day
—max. 2000 words per day
* If it is not possible to count the words and/or characters in the source text, price calculations are done based on the finished (translated) text.
