Translation Rates

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

All the prices quoted on this page are intended for corporate customers and are calculated without statutory German VAT at the current rate of 19%.

Rates for Certified Translations

Certified translations will be char­ged according to the Ger­man Legal Remu­n­e­ra­tion and Com­pen­sa­tion Act (JVEG) at a rate of  1.75 per stan­dard line (55 cha­rac­ters incl. spaces, based on the tar­get text).

Addi­tio­nal copies of the trans­la­tion orde­red toge­ther with the ori­gi­nal trans­la­tion will cost  5.00.

As certified trans­la­ti­ons are gene­rally requi­red by pri­vate cust­o­mers, all the pri­ces shown on this page include sta­tutory Ger­man VAT at the cur­rent rate of 19%.
