Frequently Asked Questions: View More

How long does a translation take? It depends on the target language and subject matter. Generally, a single translator can complete between 1,500 – 2,000 words per business day.


How much will the translation cost? Estimates are generated based on the word count of your document. The per-word rate varies by language. Languages such as Spanish and Chinese will typically cost less than less-frequently used languages.


Are the translations done by humans? Or is it machine translation? We use native speakers proficient in both the target and source languages. Machine translation does have some practical application for specific projects. But unless requested, we will only provide human translations for your project.
