How Our Translation Rates Are Calculated:
Our translation rates are on a per-word basis. The words in the document to be translated are counted, and that count is multiplied by the agreed-upon per-word fee plus our agency fee.
In some languages, such as Japanese, characters, rather than words, are counted because there is no space in between words.
If German is the source language, we will negotiate a line rate for the translation. German normally contains many word compounds rather than words which can become rather lengthy. In order to determine the line count, a fixed number of characters per line will be charged.
We post all translation jobs onto various freelance translator sites (such as oDesk) in order to solicit bids from translators. Before offering the project to the translator, we negotiate their rate for the project. The final negotiated rate will include the translator's rate we agreed to in addition to our agency fee (15% over the translator's rate)
Example: The translator requests a rate of $.10 per source language word in a document of 25,000 words. The translator's final charge equals $2,500. Our agency fee of 15% would be $375. The final charge to the client would be $2,875.00.
