The price of a translation is determined by different factors, other than the length of the document:

  • the complexity of the text in structure and vocabulary,
  • the amount of formatting needed (I recently translated a document with many figures. For some, I had to open them with Adobe Illustrator, create boxes to cover the original text, then add the translated text on top; others needed to be completely remade),
  • the time allocated to complete the project (does it require work over the weekend or outside of regular office hours?).

To make sure I am providing the best quote in terms of price and deadline, I will require a preview of any text before accepting it for translation/editing/proofreading.
