What does a professional translation cost?

Prices for translations into Danish and other languages

Prices quoted at professional translation agencies depend on several factors and can be somewhat confusing at first.

As a general rule, in most countries (e.g. Denmark, France or Spain), translation rates are usually calculated according to the number of words; page rates are less common, but are also valid.

In German-speaking countries, (i.e. Germany, Austria and Switzerland), translation rates are usually calculated according to lines or numbers of characters.

It is not that easy to compare translation prices, as the quality of the translation agency and the qualifications of the translators play a decisive role, and the degree of difficulty of the text or topic, the volume and, for example, a tight schedule must also be taken into account.

A cheap quote by a unprofessional translator can ultimately cost you twice or even three times more if the translation cannot be accepted because of a multitude of errors, and needs to be redone by a competent language expert.

The following price quotations are not binding and are only approximate, as they ultimately depend on various factors,such as the amount of text, your deadline, the degree of difficulty, or the need to translate into a rare language.

As a rule, we provide an exact cost estimate prior to the translation service; payment can then be made by bank transfer or credit card.

We are also able to respond to urgent deadline requests for translations; however, a corresponding surcharge is levied in this instance.

The processing of translations in DTP formats, e.g. InDesign or QuarkXPress, also involves additional costs.

For highly specialised translation services, e.g. medical, technical or legal, additional costs may also be incurred, especially if the texts are intended for publication and therefore need to be translated in a more specialised and audience-ready manner.
