In general, the cost of a translation is calculated on the basis of text length, measured in standard lines (55 characters incl. spaces), words or standard pages.
My regular fee for translations from English into German is € 0.15 per source word.
However, the actual fee for a particular translation contract may be higher, depending on factors such as
- delivery deadlines: a rush charge of up to 50% may be applied for unusually fast turnaround requests and for weekend work
- file format: for translating from .ppt, .xml, .html, .jpg, .pdf files or similar, I add a surcharge of at least 10%. Please provide me with your files in Word format if possible.
- complexity of the subject matter
