How much does a translation cost?
We offer two different types of translations: certified and business. If you're not sure which one you need, click here to learn more about each type of order and which one might be the best fit for your needs.
We charge $33 per page for a certified translation. We consider a page to be 250 words/numbers or less, one-sided, and standard 8.5" x 11" dimensions or smaller. Each page is counted individually and it is not based on a cumulative total.
I only submitted one page but you're charging me for two. Why?
If a page exceeds the word count limit, it will be priced accordingly. For example, a single page with 300 words on it will be considered two pages and cost $66. A single page with 700 words on it would be considered three pages and cost $99.
For the following languages, each character is considered a word: Cantonese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), and Japanese.
Because pages are not based on a cumulative total, the page count for a single page will not carry over to the next page. For example, the first page of your document may have 400 words (two pages by density), and the second page of your document may only have 25 words (one page by density). This would be considered a three-page order and would be priced at $99, even though the total number of words is under 500.
We charge $0.10 per word for a business translation. Word count is cumulative across pages. For business orders, there is a minimum charge of $20.
Please note that numbers are also included in word counts for both certified and business translations.
